Neural / Statistical / Rule-based



Machine Translation Solutions



The Era of Machine Translation

The performance of machine translation (MT) engines is constantly improving.
Since the times of rule-based MT, KI has been working with MT through trial and error for more than 20 years.
In recent years, the quality of MT output has improved impressively with the emergence of neural MT.

By utilizing MT, you can consider translating those materials that were left untouched because of time and money.

KI can provide total support for using MT from answering fundamental questions, such as whether to purchase your own engine, to assisting with the MT engine selection, performance evaluation and customization.

We Clarify What MT Can and Cannot Do

We get a lot of questions about MT, saying that although MT seems useful, it's hard to find where to start.

Given that there is a multitude of people involved in MT, including MT engine developers,
distributors, translators, and translation companies, someone seeking for MT will need to gather
information from all of them since they all provide different MT services from their standpoint.

For instance, if you need an MT engine for a new service at your company,
you will want to contact an MT engine developer or distributor.

On the other hand, if you have documents that are already translated by a translation company and wish to
reduce the costs and shorten the turnaround time using MT, you will want to contact a translation company.

Since we at KI can provide both of those services,
our strength lies in our ability to suggest the optimum solution to fit your needs.

In addition, we are familiar with various translation solutions such as
human translation, crowdsourcing translation, MT, and post-editing.

We can clarify what MT can do and cannot do, and advise on whether MT is the best solution for your
desired quality or what kind of material is suited for MT. We can also provide you with an alternative solution.
