88 ESI PRO & Translation - Part III
 

This tip applies to the following programs:

• ESI Professional


Following up on Tip 87, we saw how the English-speaking user immediately perceives that the translation of the sentence

He is well-fed, healthy, and kind all at the same time.

Él es bien alimentado, cuerdo, y clase al mismo tiempo,

contains an error.

 

ESI PRO’s Interpretation Mode presented him with the following paraphrase in his own language (English):

He is well-fed-, healthy, and sort simultaneously,

Which allowed him to realize the mistake.

 

Now, then, how can you fix the translation?

 

Let’s have a look at this step by step:

  1. Translate the phrase using the interactive mode.

  2. Go to the Interpretation Mode, selecting this option in the upper right hand corner of the interactive window

  3. Select the badly-translated word “kind” with just one click, as it is evident that it was misinterpreted as meaning “sort” instead of “kind (amiable)“.
  4. Observe that in the Parts of Speech section, it is highlighted as being a Noun. To change this, simply click on Adjective and Voila! The selection instantly changes to “kind” and the sentence is syntactically fixed.
  5. Select “Translation” again and…Job well done!

Notice that, just by correcting “kind” , the translation of ‘healthy” was corrected simultaneously.
