An e-commerce portal that can translate documents via the Web has been launched by Lernout & Hauspie Speech Products, the speech and linguistic technology provider.
L&H iTranslator Online can provide machine translation of documents of up to 5,210 words for rough quality translations for no cost. If a more polished translation is required, it provides fee-based access to L&H's network of human translation services.
L&H iTranslator Online offers 29 different language pairs for human translation and 16 different language pairs for machine translation. The machine translation language pairs covered include English to five languages and back (French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese) and cross European languages including French to German, German to Italian and others.
