What is the difference between “direct language pairs” and “language pair pivoting”?

Language pair pivoting uses a middle language (i.e. German – English … English – French) to bridge the gap between language pairs. Direct language pairs go directly from one language to another (i.e. German – French). Unlike many other competing translation technologies, all of the Language Studio language pairs are direct language pairs. Direct language pairs will always give higher quality translations than pivoted language pairs.
