Beyond Translation: engaging with foreignlanguages in a digital library (Article)
Title: Beyond Translation: engaging with foreignlanguages in a digital library
Author: Gregory Crane et al.
Abstract: Digital libraries can enable their patrons to go beyond modern language translations and to engage directly with sources in more languages than any individual could study, much less master. Translations should be viewed not so much as an end but as an entry point into the sources that they represent. In the case of highly studied sources, one or more experts can curate the network of annotations that support such reading. A digital library should, however, automatically create a serviceable first version of such a multilingual edition. Such a service is possible but benefits (if it does not require) a new generation of increasingly well-designed machine-readable translations, lexica, grammars, and encyclopedias. This paper reports on exploratory work that uses the Homeric epics to explore this wider topic and on the more general application of the results.
