What is machine translation post-editing ?

Machine translation post-editing is the process of revising and improving translations generated by machine translation systems, also known as machine translation software or translation machines. The aim of this practice is to optimise the quality, consistency and fluidity of automatically generated translations by incorporating human intervention.

 

Find out how we edit machine translations:

 

  1. Machine translation: Your text is first pre-translated by a professional machine translation system based on artificial intelligence algorithms, which generates an initial translation from the source language into the target language.
     

  2. Human editing: A human editor, who is a professional translator, carefully examines the machine translation to detect and correct errors, inconsistencies and ambiguities, and to ensure that the text complies with the appropriate linguistic and contextual standards.
     

  3. Quality improvement: The editor makes adjustments to make the translation more fluid, natural and in line with the stylistic conventions of the target language. This may include changes to syntax, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary.
     

  4. Contextual adaptation: The editor takes into account the specific context of the content, which may include cultural references, idiomatic expressions or technical terminology, to ensure that the translation faithfully reflects the original meaning.
     

  5. Final validation: Once the editing is complete, a final validation is carried out to ensure that the text meets the expected quality and accuracy requirements.


Machine translation editing is invaluable in an increasingly globalised world, where large amounts of information need to be translated quickly and efficiently to reach an international audience. It combines the efficiency of machine translation with the accuracy and cultural sensitivity provided by human intervention, ensuring that translations are tailored to the specific needs of each project.
