Service Description

I hold 12+ years (2012) of database development experience with everything from relational database design to advanced scripting and string manipulation.

A few years ago I decided to fuse my database knowledge with my interest in morphology. This resulted in a rather complex piece of software that I still use in my work as a professional copywriter, translator and content producer.

The application uses a set of shallow string manipulation algorithms (based on regular expressions) to identify morphological differences in content structure in North Germanic languages - without touching the semantics.

It provides an ability to spot inconsistencies in translated content for language pairs that derive from the same dialect group (in my case, East Norse = Swedish/Danish).

This is not machine translation, but rather a tool for copywriting, translating and proofreading North Germanic languages manually, but with a higher accuracy and speed than conventional CAT-tools can offer.

The benefits for my clients include the best of two worlds; the accuracy of machine analysis and the paraphrasing and localization abilities of human translation.
