Machine Translation (MT)

Machine translation is the use of computer software to automatically translate a text from one language to another. This can happen both through the system's internal dictionaries, paired with language-specific syntax and grammar rules, or statistically, meaning that the translation is performed by re-using previously translated chunks of text, much like a translation memory would work. Most tools nowadays use a combined approach of these two strategies.

For decades, researchers have attempted to create the ideal machine translation solution, one that would finally eliminate the need for human translation work. Some 40 years, and many millions of dollars later, this has led to the creation of systems that are able to translate many types of documents, especially very repetitive and standardized texts, with high accuracy and reliability.

However, these systems are still far from perfect and may make grammatical or contextual errors that a human translator will have to correct, a process which is known as post-editing. Wordbee not only offers powerful machine translation capabilities, allowing you to incorporate any such system into your work but also allows for automatic launching of post-editing jobs right inside your own workflows. This, among other features, makes machine translation in Wordbee something that will significantly speed up your work and reduce costs and turnaround times.
