3. The most popular: ChatGPT by and Gemini by Google 

You've probably heard about these 2 revolutionary AI tools and how helpful they can be when performing the following tasks, according to our expert Ekaterina Chashnikova:

  • Terminology extraction
  • Analysis of gendered words
  • Proofreading and QA
  • Writing meta descriptions in languages other than English
  • SEO-optimization
  • Tailored translation (terminology, style, and other requirements)
Bard, now known as Gemini, utilizes a research-based Large Language Model (LLM), a streamlined version of LaMDA, which Google continually updates with newer, more advanced models. Grounded in Google's criteria for quality information, an LLM operates as a prediction engine, generating responses word by word based on likely continuations. While prioritizing the most probable choice each time might stifle creativity, some flexibility is incorporated.

How can ChatGPT and Gemini be useful?

Extract terminology to create glossaries

Adjust your translation or texts by asking these tools for synonyms

Paraphrase a short fragment of text and keep the tone of voice

Proofread your translation and check errors (these tools also add a short explanation justifying the corrections made)

Offer more than one version for a request (Gemini can offer many versions, so you can choose one. Plus, its reliance on a sophisticated LLM enables it to provide contextually relevant responses).

What are some cons?

❌ Transcreation is not their cup of tea.

❌ The paid versions of both tools offer more interesting features.

❌ There's a risk of presenting confidently but inaccurately, misleading or false information.
