There are supposedly over 8,000 languages in the world today.
That means it would take 64 million translators to match all of the possible language pairs.
It is impossible to have a translator database of this size so in some cases, machine translation may be necessary.
Machine translation was introduced in 1954. Improvements have been made since then but it is still not at the practical level to be comprehensively used in translation. However, professional translators utilize machine translation to ensure effectiveness and high quality.
The level of machine translation varies significantly depending on the language pair. Languages do not exist independently. Languages have mutual impacts on each other at different levels so some language pairs can have many similarities in grammar and vocabulary. In these cases, there may be many instances where translation is at the level of simply replacing source language words with target language words making machine translation highly accurate. For example, machine translation between French, Spanish, Italian or Portuguese is highly accurate and automatic translation of English with German in addition to these languages can be carried out with comparatively high precision.
Machine translation accuracy is high for Japanese translation when paired with Korean. This is due to the common grammar between the two languages. There are few similarities between the grammar and vocabulary of Japanese and English so the machine translation accuracy with this pair is low. When carrying out machine translation of English and Japanese, Japanese-to-English translations tend to be less accurate than English-to-Japanese translations. This is due to the large number of postpositional particles and lack of subjects in Japanese. Therefore, the translator often has to make inferences based on the context.
Conversely, Japanese documents which do not omit subjects and use clear postpositional particles are easier to translate.
