Machine translation and post-editing

Mar 11, 2019 9:00:00 AM - 5:00:00 PM

The course outlines basic architectures of machine translation systems and proposes options of using MT-systems in the localization process. Doing so forms of pre-editing documents, such as translation-oriented authoring, observing style guides, using controlled languages etc. which help to improve the quality of machine translation will be introduced. In this course post-editing procedures of machine-translated documents are a key aspect. The calculation of work spent on post-editing machine-translated documents will also be taken into account
