Machine Translation Survey

Last week I held a webinar, titled “Making Machine Translation Part of Your Everyday Workflow”. The webinar has been recorded and posted on YouTube. It has been attended by over 90 people (mainly localization specialists working for translation agencies or translation buyers).

We ran three polling questions during the webinar and I would like to share the results here beacuse they are just very interesting. Although not fully representative, they provide a picture of where we are with machine translation today in the translation industry: Still a long way to go as one would expect.

To experience the way Memsource Cloud integrates machine translation into the everyday translation workflow, take a free trial. Or read about our post-editing analysis that provides insight into machine translation quality and usage at a segment level.

Question 1  (only 4% use MT for all of their translation projects)

Question 2 (over 70% have no control over MT use in their translation projects)

Question 3 (over 80% of MT users have no reliable way of measuring MT quality)
