AltaVista was an early innovator in the world of Internet[4] search engines. Established in 1995 in Palo Alto, California, by researchers from Digital Equipment Corporation, it was the first to offer a searchable, full-text database on the World Wide Web[1]. It quickly garnered popularity, achieving 80 million hits per day within two years. AltaVista introduced several groundbreaking features such as multimedia search and CAPTCHA technologie[3], playing a vital part in popularizing web search. It was also a pioneer in online translation[2] services with its Babel Fish application. However, competition from Google[5] led to a decline in its popularity. Acquired by Yahoo in 2003, it was eventually shut down in 2013. Despite its closure, AltaVista’s contributions to internet search technology continue to be recognized today.

Définitions des termes
1. World Wide Web ( World Wide Web ) Le World Wide Web, souvent appelé le Web, est une plateforme de système d'information très répandue avec laquelle des milliards de personnes interagissent quotidiennement. Inventé par Tim Berners-Lee en 1989 au sein de l'Organisation européenne pour la recherche nucléaire (CERN), le Web a été conçu pour prendre en charge les connexions entre plusieurs bases de données sur différents ordinateurs. Sa fonction est de faciliter le partage de contenu sur l'internet d'une manière conviviale. Pour ce faire, des serveurs web mettent à disposition des documents et des contenus multimédias. Les utilisateurs peuvent localiser ces ressources et y accéder grâce à des localisateurs de ressources uniformes (URL). Le web prend en charge différents types de contenu et permet une navigation aisée entre les sites web par le biais d'hyperliens. Son utilisation s'étend à divers secteurs, dont l'éducation, le divertissement, le commerce et le gouvernement, avec des informations fournies par des entreprises, des organisations, des agences gouvernementales et des utilisateurs individuels.
2. translation. Translation is a critical linguistic practice that involves converting text or speech from one language to another while maintaining the original meaning, style, and intent. Originating from Latin, its theories have evolved across centuries from ancient metaphrase and paraphrase concepts to modern computer-assisted methods. It plays a vital role in global communication, cultural exchange, and knowledge preservation. The practice has unique traditions and challenges across Western, Near East, and Asian regions. It requires high proficiency in languages and subject matter expertise, akin to the skills of a musician or actor in their respective fields. The field of translation has seen significant historical developments, from ancient civilizations to modern automation efforts, underscoring the importance of translators in society.
AltaVista (Wikipedia)

AltaVista was a Web search engine established in 1995. It became one of the most-used early search engines, but lost ground to Google and was purchased by Yahoo ! in 2003, which retained the brand, but based all AltaVista searches on its own search engine. On July 8, 2013, the service was shut down by Yahoo!, and since then the domain has redirected à Yahoo!'s own search site.
