Call for Papers: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Translation versus Human Translation

This is a call for papers that address artificial intelligence and machine translation in literature and serious writing, including legal, political, or medical documents. Some leaders suggest that artificial intelligence and machine translation technologies will render language instruction obsolete and that foreign language communicative needs will be solved with a pocket cellphone. Whereas in anno 2023 we can take care of many basic daily foreign language tasks with a cellphone, can tools like Google Translate or ChatGPT translate literary texts and serious writing at the same level as an experienced human translator? And can these technologies be used to generate multiple drafts to gain unique insights into the craft of translation? Moreover, how does artificial intelligence create original works in prose and poetry? How do they differ from works written by humans? Papers that examine technology assisted translation and AI creation in theory and practice are welcome.
