Translation Tuning and Predictability in Eclipse - Part 4


Our users love the many inventive and time-saving things Eclipse does for them using what we call our "AI" features. Prefixes and suffixes attach and correctly adjust spelling, Auto-brief suggests easy-to-stroke briefs on the fly, conflicts resolve accurately, Translation Magic fixes multi-stroke misstrokes, numbers convert beautifully, and more. It's truly spectacular stuff.


In Part 4 Jeremy is going to cover the Probabilistic Features, those that will yield predictable but not absolutely certain results. Translation Magic, for example, a feature of almost miraculous proportions when viewed as a programming achievement, will guess right more often than it guesses wrong, but its incorrect guesses scare away some reporters. Conflict resolution is another that reporters may back away from, some because they have been told (or taught) that conflicts are a bad thing, always to be eliminated, and others because they don't understand how the feature works. But some conflicts will resolve correctly 100% of the time. The key is knowing which ones, and which others have a high degree of likelihood to yield accurate resolutions most of the time.


Join Jeremy Thorne, the creator of Eclipse, along with Keith Vincent and Michael Starkman as they show you how to get the most out of Eclipse!

Translation Tuning and Predictability in Eclipse - Part 4


The Probabilistic feature set: Translation Magic, Intelligent Conflict Resolution, The Phonetics Table, and Automatic Punctuation.


MagicHandsThese features all involve a detailed discussion of grammar analysis tools and their inherent limitations, while at the same time providing our users insight into how to fine tune them to maximum advantage. By learning how to manage the rules for Translation Magic and allowing matches that are not available in the default settings, users can eliminate many of its false positives, or incorrect guesses. When you consider that in almost all instances Tran Magic is correcting what would otherwise be a mistran or an untran, getting better results means more accurate translations and less editing.


It is fair to say that reporters are conflicted about conflicts. Many have been taught never to create them and instead to resolve them from the writer. Almost every reporter, whether they were taught a "conflict-free" theory in school or not, has been told to avoid them. There are two major flaws with the no-conflict thesis: 1.) it is, for most reporters, nearly impossible to resolve every conflict from the writer, 2.) that thesis originated in the earliest days of CAT software, before the development of features that can make computer-resolved conflicts more accurate than reporter-resolved conflicts. In fact, Eclipse pioneered Intelligent Conflict Resolution over two decades ago. Jeremy will review how a conflict, once created, saves and learns from context as you use it, and he will teach you where your conflicts will reside on the spectrum that stretches from total certainty to maybe-you-should-resolve-this-one-from-the-writer.


The Phonetics Table is organized first by pronunciation, then by spelling. These are separated by the pipe symbol when you view the table. Jeremy will cover the spelling variation part of the phonetics table in detail so that users can tune it to their personal writing style and get better Translation Magic results not only by eliminating false positives but by allowing matches that are not available with the default settings.


The Auto-Punctuate feature also relies, as you might guess, on grammar analysis tools. Few Eclipsters even know it exists, yet it can help by choosing appropriate terminal punctuation based upon the text within the definitions it references. It, too, operates under the rules or probability, so it will covered in this webinar.
