If you observe it correctly, you may find that the word “prēma” is used to refer to love in Marathi, Oriya, Telugu and Gujarati languages in India. But, they are written differently in different languages. This is something which humans can understand, but the auto-translation tools cannot. So, it clearly implies that human translation is more effective and has an upper hand over automatic translation.

The Problem with Auto Translation

The online resources and translation tools that you use generally have a problem of understanding the semantics, i.e. the meaning and gist of the context. The machine or application finds it very difficult to use a specific phrase or term into someone’s point of view or proper perspective.

Cultural sensitivity is also one of the major problems found with machine translation. Different words have different meanings in different languages. A human translator can very well understand this fact; But, not a machine. The word selection is often poor with machines. For instance, a Spanish native may speak te amo instead of te quiero to say ‘I love you’ or express his/ her love. This is because the former has a deeper meaning and is the actual appropriate word.

Another issue that you may find is with the word order. Use of translation software is inapt in many cases and languages, where the pair of adjective-noun is changed and switched to noun-adjective. The software will make you lost in translation.

So, if you ever want to know what something turns out to be in different languages, you must definitely oft for a human hand. Love is beautiful and to know more about what ‘I love you’ is called in global languages, you should try to take the help of translators, language learners or some books. They are much better than what you call as the online translation tools.

With the help of language professionals, you can even share your festive greetings with your beloveds and spread the love. For instance, you can learn how to speak Merry Christmas in top languages spoken across the universe. This will not just pay warm regards to your family, friends and colleagues, but also make sure that no language barrier restricts you from passing your love-filled messages to the near and dear ones. So, keep translating love and make good memories!!
