PETRA


Abstract

The aim of this project is to develop a Personal Embedded Translation and Reading Assistant, which assists German-speaking language students in reading and translating Japanese documents. PETRA is fully embedded into Microsoft Word so that the students can invoke all its features directly from within the text editor. The translation rules are learnt incrementally from translation examples provided by the students, therefore, they can customize the translations according to their per-sonal preferences. This type of language learning environment encourages a bidirectional knowledge transfer, which fosters a lively interaction and makes the learning process more interesting and entertaining.
