What is AI Translation?
Artificial Intelligence language translation, also referred to as machine translation (MT), is essentially the substitution of words from one language to another by a machine-powered tool.
MT works by recognising certain terms and phrases and then restructuring text according to the rules of the new language. Although MT is advanced and beneficial, it is worth noting that the technology won’t be as accurate as human linguists; so is, therefore, best suited to large projects where there are a lot of repetitions of words and phrases.
This service level is low-cost, combining the fast-turnaround times of AI-powered machine translation with optional light post-editing by a professional translator.

How you could benefit from using language translation AI?
There are a multitude of projects and uses MT is perfect for, including:
- Translating content quickly to get a general understanding of information in another language – preferably to be used internally rather than externally in the organisation, for example, employee handbooks or training manuals.
- Increasing productivity of human linguists by providing a first-pass translation that can be quickly edited by a human in a process called post-editing, and productivity can be increased by up to 6,000 words per day. This is incredibly useful for those on tight schedules looking for quick turnaround times.
- Translating instant, volume-heavy content such as chat, email, or customer support communications.
- Content that may be useful in another language, but where there is insufficient budget, or the business case is not yet strong enough to warrant investing in full human translation.

What is Translation Memory (TM)?
TM can dramatically improve the consistency, turnaround time, and cost-saving of your project.
In short, Translation Memory stores your source text in the original language and its corresponding target text, AKA the ‘translated’ text. When starting a new project, any previous or similar content is returned by TM as a ‘match’ or close match.
Every additional project can attract savings of 30%.

What is Post-editing (MTPE)?
MTPE (Machine Translation Post Editing) is the ideal solution for a speedy turnaround with human-guaranteed accuracy.
A human linguist reviews the content produced by our machine-powered machine and edits any unnatural-sounding elements or errors, such as syntax, grammar, and terminology, to ensure the highest-quality output. This is useful when the text includes culturally specific phrases such as idioms where the meaning may otherwise be lost.
