Lingenio 'wwwtranslate for Android' translates texts from german to english or french and vice versa.
An active internet connection is needed for the translation. The translation is done using the Lingenio Translation Server, which is based on our machine translation system "translate".
o Context sensitive translation
Many words have more than one meaning which depends on the context they are used in. wwwtranslate analyses the context of the words and decides which translation to use.
For example the german word "erheben":
German: Der Staatsanwalt erhob Anklage gegen den Mörder.
English: The public prosecutor brought charges against the murderer.
German: Die Tenöre erhoben die Stimme.
English: The tenors raised the voice.
German: Er erhob sich.
English: He rose.
o Compound words
Compound words are groups of words. Their meaning cannot be derived from their component parts, therefore they must be translated differently than the individual words they contain. They must be included in the dictionary if they are to be translated correctly.
German: Ich werde die Vase zur Lampe stellen.
English: I will place the vase next to the lamp.
German: Ich werde die Vase zur Verfügung stellen.
English: I will provide the vase.
o Implicit subjects
wwwtranslate is capable of recognizing the implicit subjects of incomplete verb forms. The English verb "want" is an example. The system recognizes that in...
English: John wants to leave.
German: John will gehen.
...the subject of leave is linked to the subject of wants, while in...
English: John wants Frank to leave.
German: John will, dass Frank geht.
...the subject of leave is the object of wants (Frank).
