Machine Translation

Leverage AI-powered features designed to unlock the full potential of MT.

What is the optimal machine translation engine for you?

Find out in the latest quarterly Machine Translation Report, where MT engines are compared based on Memsource post-editing data.

  • Use the optimal engine for your content

  • Identify high-quality machine translation

  • Increase translator productivity and reduce costs

We know that machine translation has improved a lot, but it can be difficult to know which machine translation engine is best for your content. Equally, it can be hard to easily identify good quality and poor quality machine translated content. At Memsource, we are focused on using AI to ensure you make the most of the latest machine translation advances.

Our Memsource Translate feature selects the optimal engine for your content, making it easier and faster to produce high-quality translations. Plus, our Machine Translation Quality Estimation (MTQE) feature identifies high-quality machine translation output, which reduces translation costs. Using Memsource, you can also access your latest machine translation usage data and use our post-editing analysis feature to determine translation costs when human and machine translation are combined.
