Translation Post Editing

Translation Post Editing

Machine translation in its present computerized form has been around since the 1960s. Despite fortunes of money invested in this field, much of it by government agencies in various countries, quality remained poor until the mid 2000s. For years, machine translation was the subject of countless jokes about silly translations.

This started to change in recent years with the advent of Statistical Machine Translation. Quality began to improve as more and more commercial companies started to develop practical and commercial uses for machine translation. This includes some of the largest companies in the technology sector like IBM, Microsoft and Google.

The advances in the availability and quality of machine translation brought about a new approach to translation: post-editing machine translation. Using this technique, a first draft of the translation is obtained using machine translation. The machine translation is then edited by a human translator to remove mistranslations, writing and grammar errors which may have occurred. The end result is a high quality translation which is comparable to professional translation.

The advantages of using this post-editing technique are time and cost savings. Human translators can spend less time on the translation, since a computer does some of the work, and the work costs less money.

The GTS Website Translator is based on a post-editing machine translation workflow. To see how it works, access the home page, enter a web page URL and click ‘Try it Free.’ The first draft web page translation is displayed in seconds in the GTS Translation editor. Just click on any text to post-edit it. Once the post-editing is done, the web page can be saved and posted to your public HTML server.

This company is awesome! I was looking for a translation of a three page complex business proposal and I uploaded to their website for a quote. Which I got on the spot. I was surprised at how reasonable it was and was a little nervous that the job wouldn't be perfect because the price seemed so good. However, I paid online (very easy process) and the next morning I had the translated proposal in my inbox! I can't personally tell you how good the translation was because I don't really speak the language :) but my business partner tells me it was amazing! And the investors I gave it to were very impressed as well :). I wholeheartedly recommend this company and their professional services.

Fair pricing, quick turn-around, and excellent customer service. I had a problem viewing the first translation they sent and GTS responded promptly with a new file that solved the problem. Thanks GTS!

The complete experience with GTS translation was amazing. They provided a quote immediately which helped me to decide. The turn around time for translation was super fast and it was crucial for submission of an application. This will be my preferred option for Certified Translations going forward.

Loved the service and turnaround time with this company. They quickly got to know our needs (specifically for a back translation and validated translation for a research project with two languages), and though we inundated them with several additional requests through the project, all was handled professionally and with ease. Highly recommend.
