Assisted Machine Translation

Assisted Machine Translation and its Background Machine Translation, as all natural language processing applications, requires a lot of information: lexical, grammatical, translation equivalences, etc. Whatever way this knowledge is used, this knowledge must be instantiated (in dictionaries, in rules, in repository of examples, in collections of parallel texts) and processed. These two factors, knowledge collection and effective knowledge use, form the major bottlenecks faced nowadays for Machine Translation.

Computer programs are designed as to cope with general, unrestricted circumstances. In the end it usually turns out that in order to make them performant some customization is required. This gives rise to Assisted Machine Translation, with human as a facilitator during the process of Machine Translation.

  • Machine Training: To train the machine to recognize specific terms in the context of the source document by using the existing human translated abstract or the first paragraph;
  • Human intervention in restructuring translated sentences: To restructure key sentences after machine translation and make them understandable and to make sure the key points of the source text are not lost; and most importantly,
