The accelerated pace of communication for global business heightens the demand for professional translation services and expert translation management. As human-centered translation workflows struggle to keep up, machine translation is increasingly becoming a tool of choice for large scale projects, especially those with very tight deadlines.
High volume demand and time-to-market pressure mean rapid and low-cost machine translation solutions most certainly have their place in the translation mix. When deployed in the right way, MT can really provide greater efficiency, lowering costs and improving productivity.
Businesses should understand, however, that MT may not be the optimal solution for every translation project.
The in-house translation technology team at EVS Translations can discuss your company's objectives for certain types of content or communication and whether an MT solution should be deployed.
There are different types of machine translation - including statistical and neural, powered by artificial intelligence. Which type of MT is best suited for your project largely depends on the language combinations, documents’ formats, and the required degree of accuracy.
The quality of the output can change considerably based on these criteria and the approached used: machine translation on its own or in conjunction with human proofreaders and post-editors.
Partnering with a Language Service Provider will not only help you implement the right MT strategy, but also optimize your internal processes and procedures to enable machine translation technology to provide maximum benefits at minimal risk and with stringent data security.
