A new translation application has been added to MyWorkspace, which supports translation from English into the other official languages of the Union (Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian, Spanish). Two translation options are available:
– Text fragments, e.g., copy-paste from a document or website.
– Entire Word documents, retaining the formatting of the original document such as lists and tables.
This is the first service offered by ITU to make use of real-time artificial intelligence. Specifically, the Neural Machine Translation algorithm has been trained on a large body of ITU texts to significantly improve accuracy compared to free, publicly available tools.
MyWorkspace is a mobile-friendly platform that provides members with a personalized view of ITU tools, services and resources, including: Meeting documents, Events calendar, Mailing list management, My Documents and ITU-T community/chat, with additional services coming soon by popular demand.
MyWorkspace can be accessed from the ITU-T home page or from any study group homepage by clicking on top right menu icon:
