Frequently asked questions

Still have questions about machine translation? We have answers.

Machine translation refers to the translation of text from one language to others using computer software. These translation machines use algorithms and artificial intelligence to analyze and process the input text, apply linguistic rules, statistical models and neural network models to generate a translation in the target language.

Machine translation tools use algorithms and artificial intelligence to automatically translate text. They analyze the structure and patterns of the text and translate it through statistical or neural network models. Models can be trained to learn the patterns and meanings of words and phrases in different languages, improving their output.

Neural machine translation (NMT) is a technology based on artificial networks of neurons that use artificial intelligence technology. With NMT, millions of pieces of information can be translated with human-like high accuracy and reliability in real time. It can also be “trained” by human translators to improve performance.

Natural language processing (NLP) machine translation in AI refers to the use of artificial intelligence techniques to automatically translate text or speech from one natural language to another. It’s a subfield of NLP that focuses specifically on the task of translation. While machine translation focuses on language translation, NLP is a broader field covering tasks like language understanding, generation and more.

The different types of machine translation or machine translation service levels are:

  1. Raw machine translation: Automatic machine translation without human intervention. Cost-effective when all you need is speed.
  2. MT with light post-editing: Light retouches to the MT output, fixing critical typos and grammar. Perfect for internal or short-lived content.
  3. MT with full post-editing: High-quality translation, fully adjusted to your company’s voice. First-class results, accelerated thanks to MT.

Machine translation technology allows you to integrate machine translation into your existing content workflows – often at the click of a button. With plugins or an API, machine translation can be built into many existing applications and tools.

Machine translation can allow for faster, scalable and cost-effective translations. MT can quickly translate large volumes of text and handle multiple language pairs, all while reducing expenses. However, sometimes the human touch is needed to post-edit content.

Combining machine translation AI with human expertise is a proven way of harnessing the cost-effectiveness of AI without sacrificing quality in the target language. You can tailor machine translation services to match your needs, whether it’s from a light-touch human editor to full human editing.
