Tap into Machine Translation for fast turnaround and lower costs
Machine translation helps you translate content faster and cheaper.
Sometimes human translation is simply not an option because of volume, time constraints and budget. If this sounds like your situation, you should consider Machine Translation (MT) as an option for certain types of content.
Using Machine Translation
If you are struggling with your translation budgets, MT will save your customers the trouble of using Google Translate, and will generally do a better job because the solution is built using your own Translation Memories and Termbases. Professional Machine Translation is often paired with an editing process referred to as “post-editing”. This allows the editor to correct mistranslated terminology and check that the translation makes sense. It’s the happy medium between professional translation and MT.
It’s important to distinguish between Custom MT and free translation tools like Google Translate. Custom MT leverages existing human translation for a specific vertical market (retail, for example) in order to automate the translation of new content. MT is most successful when Machine Translation “engines” are trained with large Translation Memories that are specific to your own products and services. MT also works best with repetitive texts that follow a similar structure and use the same terminology.
MT is often used by customers who have very large content libraries that are often updated – large online product catalogs, for instance. Machine Translation will never give you the same result as high-quality human translation, but it does allow you to put large volumes of content into your customer languages fast and at a very low cost per word.
Our team of experts will assess your requirements to help you decide whether Machine Translation is the right option for you. Depending on your requirements you may choose to add human post-editing.
