Machine translation is typically offered via cloud-based apps trained on crowdsourced data. Artificial intelligence (AI) technology has played a key role in the market by enhancing machine translation capabilities and improving accuracy levels. AI has revolutionized machine translation, converting it into a tool that can learn by itself and improve iteratively.

The ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic will positively impact the market with a rise in the number of employees across several industrial verticals, working remotely. Growing penetration of digitalization across industries will boost the automated machine translation market demand.

Machine learning and AI translation services have enabled healthcare officials to communicate with people in different languages and disseminate the necessary COVID-19 information. As the healthcare sector adopts advanced techniques to stop the spread of the virus, the market will witness significant growth.

Advent of neural machine translation technology that enables higher quality translations

Neural Machine Translation (NMT) segment accounted for 15% market revenue share in 2019 and is expected to expand at 20% CAGR through 2026. The advent of NMT has revolutionized the market, enhancing the quality of translations due to its ability to learn directly, in an end-to-end manner. Unlike traditional phrase-based translation systems that consist of several small sub-components tuned separately, NMT attempts to construct and train a single, large neural network that reads a statement and outputs a precise translation.

The key advantage to the approach is that a unified system can be trained directly on source and target text, that eliminates the requirement of a range of specialized systems. As the technology features an end-to-end approach, it has the potential to overcome several weaknesses of traditional phrase-based translation systems.

Development of cloud technologies will support European machine translation market growth

In Europe, cloud-based machine translation solutions will witness 18% CAGR during 2020-2026. Cloud machine translation enables document conversion using a web interface across the internet. This ensures that all the user resources are at a single location. Traditional machine translation systems required a wide variety and amount of software and hardware for efficient functioning. Cloud-based systems have simplified the technology by enabling to upload, track and manage all projects and files from a centralized location.

Several market players are adopting the cloud approach for offering machine-aided human translation solutions. For instance, Dublin-based Kantan Machine Translation offers an automated translation solution using the flexibility, convenience and computing power of the cloud. The presence of an established cloud market in Europe owing to the advanced technology infrastructure in the region will support the adoption of cloud-based systems.
