What is machine translation?
Machine translation (MT) is the conversion of text from one language to another by a computer, with no human involvement.
Pioneered in the 1950s, MT is one of the earliest examples of artificial intelligence. Today’s MT is continuing to innovate by leveraging neural network models to deliver unprecedented linguistic quality. However, not all MT is created equal: its quality is determined by how it is trained.
More about machine translation
- Translate more, faster: With MT, you can translate millions of words instantly, making it great for high-volume or fast-turnaround projects.
- Access a wide breadth of languages: MT is available in hundreds of different language combinations, making it quick and easy to obtain translations in whatever language you require.
- Reduce translation costs: With neural engines, machine translation output is more fluent and significantly higher quality, reducing the amount of post-editing work required. With less human involvement, costs can be significantly lowered.
- Instant on-demand translation
- Flexible integration and deployment
- Training and adaptation
