New dissertation! Human Translation versus Machine Translation and Full Post-Editing

"It is critical to analyse the advantages and disadvantages of human translation versus human-assisted machine translation. Although several approaches to optimise the efficiency and output quality of a machine translation system exist, this study is focused on the back-end of the machine translation process. Accordingly, various comparative tests are presented, with the aim of offering statistics on human translation speed as a benchmark for carrying out machine translation post-editing measurements.

Although the area tested, "marketing brochures", seems inappropriate for machine translation systems, the challenge is to prove the potential of this technology for materials other than highly repetitive technical and/or scientific manuals" - this is a short abstract of master dissertation presented by Lorena Guerra Martinez at Dublin City University, School of Applied Languages, August 2003.
