A study by Rinsche et al. on the size of the language industry in the EU shows that the estimated value of this industry within the EU Member States will be 16.5 billion EUR by 2015, and that translation alone accounts for more than 50% of this value. It is therefore important to provide good tools for translators to improve their efficiency and/or reduce their costs. At the Computer and Automation Research Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences we started a one-year research project to build a usable algorithm to find translations and plagiarisms within a large foreign language document collection. The resulting tool is able to search for available translations not only within the local files of a company, but also online on a much larger scale. We incorporated this tool into our online KOPI Plagiarism Search Engine in December 2011 where everybody can try our new algorithm.
