Blogoscoped has a new post about “Google Translation Center”. Here is a short excerpt:
According to the Google explanations on the frontpage and their product overview page, we can see this is meant to be a translation service which offers both volunteers and professional translators… and I suppose at least the professionals will want to get paid.
More than an all-in-one stop for paid translations as some of the competing services in this field, the Google Translation Center looks like it aims to be a marketplace coordinator and tool provider.
This is a highly recommended read that presents some interesting hypotheses about future developments in translation services.
