translate plus to explore PEMT in upcoming CIOL webinar

Published on October 21st, 2020

Post-editing of machine translation is already changing the landscape of the translation industry. The rapid shift to AI and machine translation (MT) has increased demand for a new set of skills and experience for all language practitioners working in the field.

On Friday 30 October (11:00 AM – 12:00 PM GMT), translate plus Linguistic Resources Team Manager, Rayna Damyanova, will be hosting a webinar via CIOL’s platform, to discuss the different aspects of post-editing in machine translation (PEMT) projects and how today’s linguists can adapt to these hybrid and AI-driven changes.

In the webinar, we’ll look at:

  • The types of MT engines that currently exist out there
  • The benefits and limitations of rule-based MT technology vs. statistical MT technology
  • The role of the language professional in the post-editing process
  • The different layers of post-editing and what they entail
  • How to manage client expectations when working on MT projects

As part of CIOL’s webinar series, the webinar is free to everyone. To join, please register via this link.
