Technology extends human capacities. The key technology for humans is electronic in nature. Texts on the web are constantly being updated, as is our software.
The History of Automation
The term automation was coined in the automobile industry about 1946 to describe the increased use of automatic devices and controls in mechanised production lines.In general usage, automation can be defined as a technology concerned with performing a process by means of programmed commands combined with automatic feedback control to ensure proper execution of the instructions.
The resulting system is capable of operating without human intervention. The development of this technology has become increasingly dependent on the use of computers and computer-related technologies. Consequently, automated systems have become increasingly sophisticated and complex.
Advanced systems represent a level of capability and performance that surpass in many ways the abilities of humans to accomplish the same activities.
The fundamentals of Business Automation in Translation Industry
Automation in translation is making us move away from the ideal equivalence between fixed texts, becoming more like one set of revisions among many. In the world of automation, translations are less commonly employed to translate whole texts, as one did for the books with their concordances. Furthermore, automation has helped translation, like general text production, become more like work with databases, glossaries, and a set of electronic tools, rather than on complete definite source texts.

Most importantly of all the advantages rendered by business automation and contemporary technologies is undoubtedly those concerning memory which is now-a days cloud based in nature and can be retrieved with much ease at low costs.
