InterpretBank Edit Terminology for Interpreters

Glossary management

With InterpretBank you can organize all your glossaries in a clear and intelligent way. All your terminology is saved in a single database, divided in glossaries. This makes it easy to reuse your past work, for example when you create a new glossary or when you access your glossaries in the booth. If you want, you can synchronize your database and access your glossaries from your laptop and your home PC. With the Enterprise edition it is possible to use a centralized database (MSSQL or MySQL) for all staff interpreters.

InterpretBank is a desktop application. This means that all your data, you glossaries and your documents are saved on your own computer. We take data security very seriously!

Glossary creation

InterpretBank helps you create better glossaries in less time. Extract the most relevant terms from your preparatory documents, choose translations among the many suggestions InterpretBank will show you, highlight the terminology in the preparatory documents and import them into your glossary, get the key concepts of very long documents, look up your favorite online dictionaries, annotate speeches or documents with the translation saved in your glossary. All from within InterpretBank!

Many high-quality dictionaries and terminology databases, such as IATE, are integrated out-of-the-box! Lookup your favorite dictionaries on the web, find definitions, translations, examples of use. If you have parallel texts in two or more languages, spotting the terms and their translations and inserting them into your glossary is quick and fast.

Find the right translation

While you are creating a new glossary, InterpretBank will help you find the right translation for your terms. It integrates many resources, such as IATE, the terminology database of the European Institutions, possibly the biggest multilanguage terminology database on earth, MyMemory, Glosbe and many more. On top of this, with InterpretBank AT we are compiling our own terminological resources for English and many other languages. New: Neural Machine Translation is now integrated in InterpretBank. Most resources are available free of charge. Most advanced resources require a subscription.

Full automation: you have a list of terms in one language? Let InterpretBank go through your list and find the most suitable translation for every single term! And if you have preparatory documents in the target language, InterpretBank will use them to make better choices! What you have to do is to check and edit the final result!

An off-line version of IATE is available out-of-the-box in English, German, French, Spanish, and Italian. If you want, you can import other languages and make your IATE available anytime and everywhere.

Automatic terminology extraction

You received a set of preparatory documents from your client. InterpretBank will automatically extract the most relevant terminology from them, presenting you a list of monolingual terms to populate your glossary. Thanks to our machine learning algorithms, InterpretBank is able to extract a list of terms from your Word, PowerPoint and PDF documents. The term extraction is now available for English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Polish and Russian. Combine this with the plethora of translation databases integrated in InterpretBank, for example IATE, the database of the European Union, to easily create multilingual glossaries and improve your event-preparation workflow. Your texts are processed locally on your computer. Nothing leaves your hard-disk!

Speech recognition

What if InterpretBank could automatically prompt you - while you are interpreting - with the translations of the specialized terminology used at the conference, with numbers, abbreviations and places, without the need to perform any search?
