Machine Translation

Machine Translation Post-Editing (MTPE)

Machine translation solutions have been around for years. With the launch of the first AI-based and neural machine translation technology, the quality of machine translated texts has recently improved and the demand in machine translation services is now booming.

The Power of MT for Businesses

  • Speed and Efficiency: Machine translation (MT) rapidly translates large volumes of content, saving valuable time.
  • Global Reach: By making content accessible in multiple languages, MT helps reach new audiences and expand market presence.
  • Cost-Effective Solution: MT is often a more affordable alternative compared to traditional human translation.

Beyond the Machine: Why Proofreading Matters

While MT offers undeniable advantages, it’s important to understand its limitations:

  • Nuance and Context: MT can struggle with contextual nuances, cultural references, idiomatic expressions, possible absence of context, etc., leading to inaccurate or awkward phrasing. This is especially true for certain language combinations and content types.
  • Inconsistency: Technical Accuracy varies significantly. For specialized fields like legal documents or medical reports, precise terminology is crucial as inaccuracies can have severe consequences.
  • Consistent Brand Voice: Maintaining your unique brand voice is essential. MT often misses cultural subtleties and lack the human touch needed to accurately convey your brand message.
