Machine Translation: From Translation to Post-editing
This webinar is geared towards linguists who work in the localization industry and are moving from a translation to a post-editing role. It will discuss three topics:
- Define what light versus full post-editing is from a theoretical point of view, supported by practical examples
- Discuss the practical implications of neural and statistical MT for the post-editing process
- Outline how linguists can move from a translator to a post-editor role by acquiring specific transition skills
The main focus of this webinar is on the transition from the “Translation Age” to the “Post-Editing Age”, and will shed more light on the grey zones.
