Future translators

December 7, 2022

Freelance translators are supposed to be out of business soon due to advancements in AI translation tools such as DeepL.

Not so fast. The Economist now predicts that The translator of the future is a human-machine hybrid and that this kind of work will become less repetitive, more specialized and engaging:

“Tales of artificial intelligence usually pit humans against encroaching machines, Terminator-style. But the translators of the future will be neither entirely human nor machine. They will be human beings with mechanical enhancements. Call them cyborgs.”
