Abstract

The possible use of machine translation languages in understanding different languages spoken by different people in the world, is discussed. People with different cultural backgrounds learn to understand and enjoy the regional cultures they encounter, and preserve other region's indigenous cultural traditions. Machine translation systems developed for written text don't translate spoken languages well. When the error created by this system isn't acceptable, the user needs to rephrase the input text message. The scientists are trying to create communicating cultures with simple conversational agents, by moving away from metaphors such as transparent translation channels or omniscient agents. This will result in intercultural experiences to be preserved all around the world.
