Here to field your questions on machine translation

MTPE, or machine translation post-editing, means all segments are pre-translated. Translation memory (TM) matches are applied first, and segments that do not have TM matches are machine-translated. A human linguist then checks all pre-translated segments and makes corrections where needed. Human translation (HT) means the segments are not pre-filled, but linguists have access to TM and MT in a side panel.

Generic or “general-purpose” MT engines such as Google Translate, Microsoft Translate, and Amazon Translate are not trained on data for a particular domain or topic. Therefore, they’re ideal for general translations.
Custom MT engines are trained on data from specific domains. The result is a more accurate MT output for that kind of content, e.g. legal, or medial.
Customizable engines are trained with one customer’s translation memory data. This is the highest level of customization as the MT engine learns from human translations that were previously done for this specific customer with their tone of voice and terminology.
