Literal Translation, Default Translation and the Similarity of Language Systems

The IAL is pleased to present the seventh lecture in the annual Gregory M. Shreve Lecture Series in Translation Studies, instituted in honor of the IAL’s founding director. The series is made possible through the generosity of alumni, IAL faculty members, and friends of the IAL.

Michael Carl is Professor for Human and Machine Translation and Director of the Center of Research and Innovation in Translation and Translation Technology (CRITT) at the Copenhagen Business School in Denmark. He has authored and co-authored more than 130 refereed papers and has co-edited several books. His current research interests are related to the investigation of human translation processes and how advanced computer tools (such as machine translation) can fruitfully complement and support human translation activities. His research areas include machine translation, terminology tools, data analytics, and the implementation of natural language processing software. He is particularly interested in harnessing the power of data analytics to produce and refine cognitive models to support the design of next generation machine translation programs.
