If you’re a driver, you’ve probably heard of the two-second rule. Staying at least two seconds behind any vehicle is considered a rule of thumb for drivers wanting to maintain a safe following distance at any speed. The two seconds don’t represent safe stopping distance but rather safe reaction time.
Do you remember the last time when people were NOT talking about machine translation (MT)? We don't. Wherever you go, there’s someone talking about MT. With few exceptions, it seems like the only major disruptors in our industry over the past few decades have been breakthroughs in language technology.
Some machine translation providers are holding out hope for MT systems that adapt to document context. Could this development eliminate the need for custom MT engines? Will context-enabled MT help MT achieve human parity? Will we still need to customize a few years from now? Let’s discuss further.
Because of the speed with which UGC (comments, feedback, reviews) is being created and the corresponding costs of its professional translation, many organizations turn to MT.
One of the main reasons for implementing machine translation (MT) into localization workflows is that it saves money. And time. This time, let’s focus on money. In particular, cost savings.
How one implements Machine Translation (MT) in their lives? Let’s dig further into how this nice scheme can be applied to a Machine Translation Post Editing (MTPE) workflow. Here’s a common 4-step way.
School is back in session! In this episode, Michael interviews a panel of localization professors—Max Troyer, Jon Ritzdorf and Jan Grodecki—about how they are preparing students for the future of localization. They discuss how curriculum should both ride the wave of current technology as well as teach students traditional critical skills. Other topics include the […]

Today, machines translate more in a day than all human translators on the planet combined translate in a year. As machine translation (MT) becomes more widespread, its uses expand too. You could argue MT has replaced human translators in some scenarios. On the other hand, it also created new ones. The old questions of cost, […]
