Creating Custom Translations
O f course, translating text is a challenging task, given the complexities and subtle
usage considerations of dozens of different languages and cultures. Grammar,
sentence structure, and pronoun use vary greatly among languages, and in some cases
you might find that the translation offered is close but not exactly accurate for the task
at hand.
Although the translations available through various online services are continually
being improved, developers might decide to create a set of custom translations for
specific words that are used often in common documents. For example, if you
regularly work with a team in China, you might want to create a set of common terms your
department uses regularly in communications with the Chinese team. You can then
share a custom bilingual dictionary with your team that includes your custom
translations so that they are available to everyone in your department.
You can create a bilingual translation dictionary by using the Translation Dictionaries
Content Development Kit. Find out more about how to develop this custom solution
by reading the article, “Creating a Custom Service for Office 2010 Mini Translator,”
available on http://blogs.technet.com .
