Machine translation (MT) is not to be used in every situation, but when applied correctly, it can be a really useful tool.
Your files are run through the machine translation engine. The engine searches for pre-translated terms.
Pre-translated terms are populated in the target files. A human linguist checks and amends the machine translated files
The translated document is delivered to the client. The machine translation engine is updated with newly translated terms
Customised MT engines, built using your specific data, can simply be integrated into your standard localisation process as a means of enhancing productivity – whether that be in our Translation Management System (TMS) or your external systems.
Capita TI’s professional linguists provide post-editing of content that has been machine-translated, delivering the same linguistic quality as a human translation, for significantly lower time and cost. The more you use SmartMATE MT, the more benefits will be gained, as the intelligent machine is capable of learning, memorising and adapting to both old and new content.

Machine translation: What, Why When & How?
As part of our MT solution, we offer a range of associated services including:
MT evaluation – we’ll help you decide whether MT is right for you, and which business challenges can be solved using this technology.
Corpus acquisition – we’ll collect, prepare, clean and normalise terminology that is right for your business.
Quality evaluation – we assess how to get the most out of your MT engines, and regularly report our findings.
Translation Memory – Linguistic assets can be managed with tools such as Translation Memory (TM), which helps you to lower translation costs over time as you require a more regular translation services. Such tools store previously translated content, meaning the linguist can focus their efforts on new content, and simply check previous content for context matches. By integrating this with Machine Translation, productivity gains can be massive, as higher volumes of work can be translated in shorter time frames. Read more on Terminology management
