InterpretBank is a widely known computer-assisted interpreting tool developed to support professional interpreters during all phases of the interpreting process, from event preparation to the act of interpreting. Specialized events require the use of highly specialized terminology. In order to improve interpreting quality, interpreters need to acquire profound insight into the event subject, to create high-quality glossaries, and to easily access them in the booth. To support interpreters in this task, InterpretBank focuses on the creation and management of specialized glossaries as well as on facilitating terminology retrival during interpretation. The main application runs on Windows and iOS. Glossaries can be accessed from desktops and laptops and from any mobile device, like an iPad or an Android tablet.
Combining the latest advances in Artificial Intelligence, such as in the fields of Speech Recognition1 and information retrieval, to the deep knowledge of the interpreting process, InterpretBank provides professional interpreters with series of tools and functions that can help improving their working experience and performances, especially when working with specialized subjects. For instance, InterpretBank is able to suggest translations automatically while the user is creating a new glossary. This dramatically reduces the effort and the time involved in writing high-quality glossaries. During the act of interpreting, intelligent algorithms allow the user to access relevant terminology quickly without distracting the interpreter from his or her primary activity - translating between languages.
