  • Using machine translation effectively in technical documentation
    on 7. May 2021 in Machine Translation

    Operating instructions, manuals and other technical documents are usually ideal candidates for machine (pre-)translation. There are four ways you can make the most of artificial intelligence and use machine translation (MT) to produce translations of these texts: free tools, Pro versions, self-service portals offered by translation agencies, and outsourcing translations to agencies. We explain when they can work for you, and when they might not.

  • Using a self-service portal for machine translation
    on 8. April 2021 in Machine Translation

    When businesses have the internal resources for post-editing, they often want to go it alone with machine translation (MT). But which services to use? Free engines are less than ideal, given the problems with data privacy, the quality of the output and the practicalities, so this is where self-service portals come into play. They make it easy to get all documentation machine translated, with no risks and no long-term commitments.

  • Transcreation: more than just a creative translation
    on 9. March 2021 in Buying translations
