What is machine translation?
Optimization, streamlining and increased output
Machine translation (MT) is more than just an algorithm that converts a word from one language to another; it is an extraordinarily practical resource for companies and organizations looking to expand into multilingual markets. In today’s dynamic and fast-paced digital environment, machine translation is the ultimate tool that can deliver agility, optimization and increased productivity to your business.
On the one hand, “as is” machine translation offers very useful translations for internal, low visibility and non-critical translations. With this solution, we obtain a quick and easy result. If further editing by a human reviewer is added, the reviewer can focus on improving complex phrases and terms, because much of the work has already been done. This helps enhance the quality and reliability of the final result, with higher productivity.
Machine Translation (MT) for web and enterprise
For technology-related companies and those interested in scaling into new markets, machine translation is not just an option, but a necessity. A machine-translated website not only gets your message to a wider audience, but also positions you as a global player. This is where iDISC’s machine translation technologies come in. Our proprietary engine, armed with our own glossaries and corpora, can generate high-quality translations that resonate with your industry-specific terminology.
Quality machine translation: transforming texts into different languages
The biggest myth surrounding machine translation is that it lacks quality. At iDISC, we strive to break this stigma. Machine translation here not only involves the use of online translators and terminology databases, but we carry out a thorough human post-editing process to correct possible errors and polish the final result. With options such as basic and advanced post-editing, we tailor our solutions to specific customer needs. In each case, machine translation serves as a catalyst for increased productivity and significant cost optimization.
Advantages of machine translation
The translation universe is diverse. Not all industries and text types require the same level of translation accuracy, and this is where the benefits of machine translation are most evident. This type of solution saves time and resources, and allows the team to focus on more complex or more productive business activities. Whether for internal o low-visibility content, or for texts that are going to be more visible and require proofreading, at iDISC we use specialized translation engines with industry-specific glossaries, speeding up the entire process and adjusting human intervention to guarantee the appropriate quality for each purpose. In addition, our automatic translation tools provide an extra layer of information protection, minimizing the risk of content leaks.
Machine translation options
Basic or general machine translation
Online translators and terminologies previously stored in general databases are used, which speeds up the work of the translation team when reviewing and validating the final texts. This tool is not recommended for direct publication without review, but it certainly facilitates and accelerates the post-editing phase to deliver a reliable and high-quality product.
Specialized machine translation
We use a private engine with our own glossaries and corpora, which generates high-quality using phrases and terminology associated with your company’s industry. It also offers an additional guarantee of information protection, so you don’t have to worry about content leaks.
Machine translation post-editing
After using machine translation, language professionals post-edit to correct potential errors and polish the final product. Post-editing can be as strict as the customer requires it to be. This may vary depending on the content, its visibility and its end user. Customers can opt for a basic or light post-edition service, or upgrade to a complete or advanced post-edition service. Machine translation helps boost productivity and optimize costs across the board.
Types of postediting
When performing a basic post-editing, the post-editor focuses on the basic and essential aspects to ensure faithfulness to the original meaning, and basic grammatical and spelling correctness.
This is a more meticulous post-editing, in which, in addition to checking the correctness of the meaning and grammar of the text obtained with the machine translation, the specific terminology is also checked and, if necessary, sentences are reformulated to make the text more fluent, and to make it sound more authentic and idiomatic.
