Abstract

The invention is the utilization of Machine Translation (MT) technology to enable National Language Support (NLS) for documentation. Currently, the documentation must be translated by a human translator, either with or without the assistance of MT or Translation Memory, into each language that a product must support. This is both costly and time consuming. The MT utilization solution allows the documentation to be written in only one language (such as English) and then translated using MT into the other necessary languages at various times: prior to shipping, on the fly one language at a time, or on the fly one file at a time.
