Workshop on the Generation of Multilingual Parallel Documents


This event is a technical workshop on how to automate the production of multilingual parallel documents (pardocs) based on the simultaneous generation of all the linguistic versions from one skeleton template and parallel segments.

To avoid misunderstanding: generation of pardocs is not about machine translation (MT) or computer aided translation (CAT). It is about processing already translated parallel segments into documents. MT and CAT might be used in creating parallel segments.

The workshop will encompass: base concepts, historical example, manual example, available spartan system, future development of one open source system supporting many document types, and perhaps short talks by authors of position papers. The workshop will conclude with an open discussion.
