What You May Not Know About Machine Translation

Machine translation can deliver quality that is as good as – or better than – a human translation. To get to this level of quality, two elements are utterly essential: customizing the MT engine on the specific terminology, and post-editing the raw translation output from a SMART* machine translation process.

When working on large-scale projects, the MT output acts as a first draft, saving valuable time but also ensuring terminological consistency across many thousands of pages, the way only technology can do. This means that by pairing people + technology, our machine translation solutions can be successfully applied to critical content – including catalogs, e-Learning course content, manuals, reports and software – to ensure significant time and cost-savings.

Some of our manufacturing customers also find a significant advantage to their operations by making MT engines we have customized available to all employees via corporate intranet. This gives employees the ability to use MT to rapidly translate documents and emails without breaching security by going outside the firewall to use an online translation service such as Google.
