Elisabete Miranda explains how translation has been a necessity since thousands of years ago and its evolution, its purposes and methods for achievement. Miranda also mentions that language translation has made it possible to overcome the obstacle of language barriers that keep humans from meaningful communication. Today, in the global commerce that interacts with so many different people, translation has helped allow businesses to convey their service or product to more people. With new innovative methods for faster translation such as automated translation, businesses seek accessibility. Overall, she concludes that the progression of translation must consist of both automated and human translation in order to efficiently translate.
