Machine Translation Post-Editing

As one of the world’s leading language service providers, CSOFT International provides high quality machine translation (MT) post-editing services by leveraging our in-country linguists and subject matter experts (SMEs). With today’s rapid development of statistical MT (SMT) engines driven by big data, enterprises need fast access to high-quality machine translation post-editing services.

Linguistic quality assurance (LQA) is a key factor in the professional machine translation process, ensuring the highest quality linguistic output. The LQA process typically comprises of subject matter experts systematically checking translated materials against the source content. Established metrics are used to review documentation for mistranslations, terminology errors, syntax and spelling mistakes, readability, accuracy, and cultural appropriateness.

Why use machine translation?

Machine translation is widely available in today’s digital economy. It is quick, easy, and  can be done in hundreds of languages for little to no cost. For restrictive budgets, machine translation can be a viable option for some documentation. However, machine translation on its own comes with a very high-risk. Even with today’s latest technologies such as neural MT algorithms, machine translation systems are not fully accurate, and often struggle with grammatical structures.

To mitigate risk when machine translating, enterprises need post-editing services which use linguists with subject matter expertise to ensure there are no mistranslations, grammatical errors, and that their texts are culturally appropriate. CSOFT has experts to comprehensively check machine translated texts, ensuring your enterprise saves on time and cost while minimizing risk.
