KantanMT has established a new benchmark for Cloud SMT within the translation industry by making machine translation easy to access, inexpensive to use and establishing it as a viable technology that can improve translation productivity for small and medium-sized LSPs.


"As a technology, machine translation will become even more fundamental than translation memory for LSPs in the years ahead", said Teddy Bengtsson, Founder/Director, RoundTable Studio and an early adoptor of KantanMT, "making MT successful requires investment in knowledge development and process integration, bit more importantly you need to find the right platform. Simplicity and flexibility made us choose KantanMT."

What is KantanMT™?

What is Xcelerator?

Xcelerator Machine Translations Solution is a new start-up that is focusing on making Machine Translation easy to use, inexpensive to access and available to mid-sized LSPs that are eager to integrate MT into their client’s localisation workflows. Xcelerator is focusing on the growing number of small-to-medium sized language service providers (LSPs) that want to – or must – offer machine translation to their clients.


Recent research on pricing shows that while a very small percentage of translation agencies use MT on every job, nearly a quarter of small LSPs, and more than half of medium-sized LSPs, will apply it if requested to do so by their clients. However, most providers don’t have the technical expertise to install an MT solution, train engines for their clients, and integrate it with their workflow. Xcelerator aims to fill that gap.
