12 Apr The Benefits of Machine Translation Post-Editing
Machine Translation Post-Editing (MTPE) is the process of translating data to different languages using translation engines with human translators reviewing afterwards. So, how can MTPE benefit your business? Here are a few reasons you should give MTPE a chance:
Volume of content
When tasked with a large amount of material to translate, machine translation can produce a higher volume of content quicker than human translation.
Human translation costs a lot more than machine translation because they take more time. Time is money, especially when it comes to translation, as the costs for translation are generally an hourly rate. By using machine translation post-editing, there are major cost saving to your projects.
Along with cost savings, MTPE also can give you quality savings in your translations. Machine translation’s accuracy depends on the machine translation’s engine. Translation quality is high when the content falls within a specific domain.
Using MTPE gives you faster turnaround than human translation. Generally, it takes less than an hour to translate a project using machine translation (depending on the number of languages and size of the project). Post-editing after machine translation adds a little more time, but is a lot quicker than straight human translation.
