MEINRAD.cc – Your machine translation provider

Google Translate is one of the best-known examples of machine translation, although it doesn’t exactly have the best reputation (with good reason). In the context of professional translation services, however, machine translation has great potential in terms of creating new opportunities for established businesses.

How does machine translation work?

Translations already done by human translators form the basis of machine translation. These reference materials are “fed” into machine translation engines so that these engines can learn both terminology and style from the existing translations through the use of algorithms. When an engine translates new texts for the first time, it does so on the basis of the algorithms it has learned. This means that the quality and quantity of the reference materials are key in determining the quality of the machine translation output.

As machines are still a long way off being able to translate with the same quality as human translators, the engine output is always revised and improved by human translators. This process is called “post-editing”. The changes made are then added to the engine’s algorithms, and it learns from them. As a result, the more frequently a machine translation engine is used, the higher the quality of the translations becomes and the less post-editing work is required.

Who can benefit most from machine translation?

Unfortunately, there’s no simple answer to whether machine translation is suitable for your business or to the amount of savings you could potentially make. As a machine translation provider you can trust, we are on hand to offer a personal, no obligation consultation and can work with you to assemble a business case for machine translation tailored to the requirements of your business.
