Prague, Czech Republic, June 15, 2021 – Memsource, the AI-powered translation management system, has expanded its support for machine translation by integrating Tencent Cloud’s Tencent Machine Translation (TMT).
It is now available as a fully managed engine within Memsource Translate, the platform’s machine translation management hub. Users can immediately start leveraging Tencent Machine Translation in their translations with no setup and simple in-app payment.
Tencent Cloud, the cloud business of Tencent, is a global leading cloud services provider. Its machine translation engine, Tencent Machine Translation, is a unique MT solution that combines both neural and statistical machine translation models and supports over 160 different language pairs. At the 2018 Workshop on Machine Translation, Tencent Cloud’s machine translation recorded the highest human evaluation scores for translation from English into Chinese and the highest automated scores for translations from Chinese into English.
Tencent Machine Translation joins three other leading MT engines as a fully-managed engine in Memsource Translate. All fully-managed engines can be used with Memsource Translate characters, which can be purchased directly within the translation management system. Users that have already purchased Memsource Translate characters can simply enable Tencent Machine Translation to start translating.
Choosing the optimal engine for a translation task is simplified through Memsource Translate’s AI-powered MT Autoselect functionality. This feature uses an AI algorithm and past performance data to always recommend the optimal engine for a user’s content, based on its language pair and content type. Memsource’s extensive testing found that Tencent Machine Translation achieved higher quality translations with specific domains and languages. The addition of Tencent Machine Translation by Tencent Cloud is expected to significantly improve the quality of translation for English to Chinese and vice versa.
“We are always looking for new opportunities to make machine translation more accessible and useful for all our users. We were impressed with the quality of Tencent Cloud’s output, which in many of our internal tests outperformed engines already available in Memsource Translate for certain domains and language pairs. In the past, we observed that MT struggles with certain language pairs, and this is especially true when Chinese is a source or target language. By integrating Tencent Cloud’s machine translation solution, we are providing not just our customers, but also our autoselect algorithm, with new and meaningful tools for better translation” Dalibor Frívaldský, Memsource’s Chief Technical Officer.
“We are poised to make more contributions in connecting the world further by eliminating language barriers and creating greater values to users. It is our great pleasure to be endorsed by Memsource Translate, which highlights how our solution, backed by Tencent Cloud’s advanced technology and years of experience in machine translation, goes above and beyond,” said Leo Li, Vice President Tencent Cloud International.
Tencent Machine Translation is now available for all users of Memsource and can be accessed directly through the Memsource Translate interface.
