COVID-19 pandemic has positively impacted the European machine translation industry growth due to rise in the need to access critical public health information that may not be available in native language of citizens. Several government organizations have made crucial information regarding risk of the pandemic available in many languages. For instance, Federal Ministry of Health (BMG) in Germany published information regarding COVID-19 in German, English, Russian, and Turkish languages. To overcome language barriers and provide invaluable support resulted in increased demand for machine translation software.
Technological advancements, such as the development of modern Neural Machine Translation (NMT) engines that are designed to mimic human mind, have revolutionized the market. The NMT technology uses large artificial neural network to calculate the probability of words sequence and provide more contextually precise translations. Market players are focusing on R&D activities to continuously improve and refine NMT technology. For instance, in August 2018, SDL PLC launched NMT 2.0 into a secure cloud environment to enhance its machine translation capabilities.
Cloud-based deployment models are expected to witness increased adoption among businesses to process real-time audio translation with enhanced accuracy and simplified integration. Leveraging cloud-based machine translation helps enterprises to rapidly process content across multiple use cases and scenarios. Cloud storage reduces the workflow complexity of translating multiple or long text files that require an immediate response. Cloud deployment options provide secure access to projects, tasks, and translations and comply with local data governance regulations such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and German Federal Data Protection Act.
The expanding healthcare sector in Europe will offer growth opportunities to the machine translation market. The healthcare organizations are majorly investing in robust machine translation tools to provide precise communication to patients regarding their medical information. These tools are witnessing high adoption in clinical practices to prevent language barrier while communicating with a patient.
In October 2020, German Federal Ministry of Health selected AppTek LLC, an NMT solution provider, to help language mediators in working remotely with emergency rooms and hospitals throughout Germany. The automatic speech recognition and neural machine translation facilitate multilingual communication to help healthcare providers improve critical care for non-native speakers.
Key players operating in the Europe market include IBM Corporation, Moravia IT s.r.o., Google LLC, Microsoft Corporation, Amazon.com, Inc., Systran International, AppTek LLC, Cloudwords Inc., PROMT Ltd., SDL PLC, Smart Communications, Inc., Raytheon BBN Technologies Corp, and Yandex.Cloud LLC.
The players are adopting partnership and collaboration strategy to expand their product offerings. For instance, in March 2021, Systran International, a neural automated translation technology provider, partnered with FAPCOTECH General Trading Company to represent SYSTRAN’s machine translation products and related services in the Kuwait market.
