Translation of Idiomatic Expressions Across Different Languages: A Study of the Effectiveness of TransSearch

Abstract

This chapter presents a case study relating how a user of TRANSSEARCH, a translation spotter as well as a bilingual concordancer available over the Web, can use the tool for finding translations of idiomatic expressions. We show that by paying close attention to the queries made to the system, TRANSSEARCH can effectively identify a fair number of idiomatic expressions and their translations. For indicative purposes, we compare the translations identified by our application to those returned by Google Translate and conduct a survey of recent Computer-Assisted Translation tools with similar functionalities to TRANSSEARCH.
