Overcoming Language Barriers in Academia: Machine Translation Tools and a Vision for a Multilingual Future
Zuckerman Postdoctoral Scholar Julie Shapiro publishes paper in BioScience.
Having a central scientific language remains crucial for advancing and globally sharing science. Nevertheless, maintaining one dominant language also creates barriers to accessing scientific careers and knowledge. From an interdisciplinary perspective, the study describes how, when, and why to make scientific literature more readily available in multiple languages through the practice of translation.
