A Short Introduction to MT-Qualifier

  1. 1. http://mt-quality.multilizer.com/
  2. 2. ”I don’t use MT because I can’t trust it.””Google, Bing, Promt, Apertium, Sunda or ...?I don’t know which machine translator to choose.””I only waste my time when I have to edit bad machinetranslations. I rather translate from a scratch.” WMT 2012 conference with SDL and 10 universities 2
  3. 3. Automatic estimation of MT quality  For each sentence  In real-life situations without reference translation Selection of best translation English – Spanish (others to come soon) Our results are better than others Patent pending technology 3
  4. 4. • First commercial implementation• Improves MT quality• Quality estimation error is less than 20% (in 9 out of 10 cases) Example case: WMT 2012 Workshop on Statistical Machine Translation. MT-Qualifier - RMSE: 0,55 This year’s best - RMSE: 0,75 Last year’s best - RMSE: 0,82 RMSE = residual mean squared error → The smaller error, the better! 4
  5. 5. Tip of the iceberg: “Only 0.5% ofCurrent market size what needs to be translated today is 25 Billion EUR. is currently being translated due to cost and time constraints. Humans cost too much and take too long.” MT-Qualifier Target: The fast growing bulk (underwater part) of the iceberg! 5
  6. 6. (pricing per page)Professional translation > 20 EUR Qualified MT ≈ 1 EUR Raw MT > 0,02 EUR 6
  7. 7. + = MT-Qualifier API now available  Very easy to integrate MT-Qualifier with existing applications (API similar to those of Google or Bing)  Translation tool & plugin vendors can offer best machine translation to their customers via MT-Qualifier  Other Options: feedback application for authors, machine translation filter for post editors, translation quote maker for LSPs, etc 7
  8. 8.  Leading translation & localization technologies since 1995 Each month over 120 million words are translated with Multilizer products in more than 150 countries Multilizer products:  Localization tools (software localization in particular)  Machine translation for documents (eg. PDF files)  Machine translation qualification (MT-Qualifier) 8
