  • Google corrige les biais sexistes de son service Translate

Difficile pour un robot d'afficher toute la richesse et la complexité des langues, notamment en matière de représentation du féminin face au masculin. C'est l'une des richesses du français face à l'anglais.

En annonçant la prise en compte du genre grammatical pour une traduction, Google dit vouloir réduire les préjugés sexistes avec son outil dédié Google Traduction.

La parade est le choix entre le féminin et le masculin dans la traduction, avec par défaut deux propositions classées en fonction de l'ordre alphabétique de leur libellé (féminin et masculin).

Certains cas étaient également plus subtils, par exemple lors de la traduction de mots comme "fort" ou "docteur", systématiquement mis au masculin, alors que "infirmière" ou "belle" n'affichait que la version féminine, oubliant donc "infirmier" ou "beau".

Avant cette mise à jour, Google n'affichait qu'une seule traduction pour un mot qui pouvait être soit masculin soit féminin.

Cet ajout est pour l'instant disponible pour traduire un seul mot de l'anglais au français, italien, portugais ou espagnol, et pour traduire plusieurs mots ou phrases du turc à l'anglais. "Par conséquent, il reproduisait par inadvertance le sexisme ambiant ", note Google.
