Machine Translation (MT) with professional post-editing

Machine Translation (or MT) continues to evolve, but its quality is still not capable of reaching the quality of human translations. The result is often meaningless, or appears to have a meaning but is translated incorrectly. This is true not only of Google Translate, used by many people, but also of better, higher-quality industry solutions. Nevertheless, there are translation jobs for which machine translation should be used, primarily for cost-savings.

The more the following conditions apply, the more worthwhile it is to use machine translation:

  • A long text
  • Linguistically simple (not translation work, very simple user instructions)
  • The objective is knowledge of the essential content of a particular text (i.e., not for publication)
  • The speed of the translation is important
  • The rough translation prepared by the computer is reviewed, checked, and improved by professionals (translators, proofreaders)

As a company listed on the stock exchange, NordTelekom’s written materials are expected to radiate sophistication, whether they are financial statements, contracts, or even simply marketing texts. Afford has been the reliable partner we can count on in any situation. This is particularly important now, as our constant expansion in England requires English, Polish and Hungarian language services. I highly recommend them.
