Quarantine in the 1600s

Quarantine was the main method of prevention of the black plague in Venice, and the lazzaretti served that purpose.

: "Unreadable translations of pirated books flooding the internet show that the process cannot currently be fully outsourced to computers. Instead, publishers have begun to use AI-assisted translation. Some European presses work with Nuanxed, which employs humans to edit machine-translated books. The company aims “to maintain the quality of traditional translations”, offering savings to publishers and “market rates” to linguists.

The threat of being undercut by machines is an ongoing concern for translators. In its recent survey, the European Council of Literary Translators’ Associations recommends that professionals avoid editing AI-generated texts or charge translation rates for such work. In our age of jet-propelled information, translating by hand could become the new green travel; the appeal of sustainably translated books would then grow, hopefully benefiting their creators.

When asked about quality, even some of the proponents of AI believe it may be good enough for a potboiler but not for a poetry collection. Kristoffer Lind, the CEO of the Swedish publisher Lind & Co, told me that his company only uses machine translation for genres such as crime and romance. While the suitability of AI is often debated in economic terms, for Eva Ferri, the publisher of Europa Editions UK and the Italian press Edizioni E/O, the choice is ethical. “Hiring a human being is the right thing to do,” she says, “even when the alternative is much more cost-efficient.”"

Hey, @crunchyroll, if you remove humanity from language, I quit you. And I hope everyone who likes/favs/retweets/reposts/retoots this does too. Put out a press release stating you will never use AI for , or face waves of revenue loss.

The for the has been installed!!! 🥳​

It’s not like it was forbidden to translate the manuals before, or to propose translations for installation, but that just never happened.

Now, as Eli wrote:

"So now this stuff is in its place and ready for adding more translations. What is still missing is the Make wizardry to produce the translated manuals as part of the build and install then as part of "make install". Patches welcome. When this is done, we should call out the translations in NEWS."

I’m not sure I’ll have the time to learn that new skill set any time soon (well, not before the summer anyway), so if anyone wants to give it a go, please do so!

A Venetian Law

Ignorance of the law is no excuse — so the Serenissima sometimes published laws on inscriptions around the city.

For a ongoing series where I use the whole text of Georges Perec’s book La disparition to create monochrome prints, I am searching for the digital text versions of the Dutch, German, Italian and Swedish translation of the book. Any clues to find/ search are welcome.
Searching for PDF’s online is risky business and e-books are copy-protected. #perec #ladisparation #translations

Looking into the possibility of adding #translations to my #WordPress #website and wondering if anyone else is doing so. I think initially I'd be using one of the automatic translators, but would eventually go to manual so I can make sure the style fits my own. My website is about #woodworking but I welcome recommendations from anyone who is using a translation service for their website.

Also interested in how to test my site for #readers for the #blind.
