Machine translation post-editing

You don’t have the budget for a full human translation, but you don’t want to use machine translation? There is now an intermediate solution: machine translation post-editing.

What is post-editing?

It is a translation done by a professional translation engine and reviewed by a “human” translator. In short, the translator relies on a computer translation, but corrects mistakes. This type of translation is well suited for translations that do not require a high level of copywritting, but that must be error-free. Post-editing is also well suited for content that does not have a long life cycle.

This type of hybrid translation is suitable for:

  • internal company memos,
  • non-promotional publications,
  • publications on social networks,
  • curation of community management content.

Nevertheless, this type of translation is not suitable for key publications or marketing
