SkyCode SkypeTrance


What is SkypeTrance?

SkypeTrance is a software module allowing automatic translation of chat messages in Skype from and to English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and Bulgarian.

Quality and understandability of translation

Sensible, not literal translation is a challenge to many people learning a foreign language. The goal of WebTrance is understandable translation of complete sentences, not just another computer dictionary. Following this goal, WebTrance is constantly being improved. Of course, no computer program can deliver a 100% accurate translation, especially in cases where the meaning of many words and even whole sentences depends on the context.  

For instance:

"The judge considered the sentence." can be interpreted ambiguously, not knowing whether the word "sentence" means a conviction or a string of words.

Why the program errs?

When you read a text, you analyze its contents drawing on your entire life experience, i.e. mostly on the word meanings. WebTrance analyzes the text drawing mainly on the grammar and syntax and only partly using semantic analysis. It is so, because the grammar and syntax are much better defined than the semantic associations everyone starts learning from the very birth.

As a consequence of the above, insignificant errors in the grammar of the input text might sometimes lead to the complete loss of understandability in the translation. A similar effect can be observed if the intended meaning of a given word in the source sentence is not present in the database.
