  • Post-editing is the process of editing raw MT outputs or automated translations to meet the quality criteria of your projects. Post-editing strategy is defined according to the required target quality level and the system that is in place (SMT or RBMT).

    Publishable Quality The same quality as would be
    achieved by standard TEP process.

    Let us complement your MT outputs

    Transistent offers post-editing services for your MT projects in following language pair combinations: Turkish English and German. Depending on your quality expectations, we assign the right team of well-trained post-editors that are acquainted with widely-used translation tools.
    It’s now impossible to disregard recent advances in Machine Translation (MT), namely Automated Translation (AT) technology. As many MT users know well, researchers have been working on statistical algorithms to improve the output quality and maintain a consistent translation system since 1990s. For predictable output quality is a desired function, most of the actors in translation & localization industry prefer Statistical Machine Translation (SMT) systems.

    In order to gain maximum efficiency from these systems, custom engines are used for different clients, domains and language pairs.

    Our teams that are on the cutting edge of new SMT technology train, optimize and retrain custom engines for specific domains and language pair combinations (Turkish English and German). There are several options to benefit from our Custom Engine service; raw MT outputs, MTPE workflows, leveraging your data before retraining, lexicography services.

    You have invested in Machine Translation (MT) technology or you are planning to integrate translation automation systems into your workflows of large-scale projects?

    Transistent measures and reports the productivity of your linguists, manages your workflows and creates the most convenient workflow to gain optimum productivity. Our teams test your engines and define for which parts of your projects MT systems are likely to be used and for which the traditional process is the best choice.

    Transistent may offer consultancy service as well as production management for the whole process.

    Services offered:

    Quality estimation
    PE distance measurement
    Measuring the time spent on PE tasks
    Asset Evaluation
    Translated content should be of consistent quality but it’s not always so easy to maintain such a system that successfully evaluates and controls the output quality. On the other hand, every translation and/or localization project has its own dynamics and quality requirements. By defining QA Models and Metrics, and integrating the required procedures into your workflows, Transistent offers total quality management to help you in achieving consistent and standardized quality.

      Performing Quality Checks based on your custom QA Models
      Implementing industry standards
      Creating customized QA Models for your projects (HT, MT, and Hybrid)
      Extracting error patterns
      LQA Reports based on required error typology
     
    Please contact us for our LQA Packages.
    Terminology Management

    It is a proven fact that terminology is a key element of linguistic workflows. Efficient management of terminology guides you to consistency and so high quality. On the other hand, it’s not always so easy to handle terminology management procedures particularly for bigger translation & localization projects. In that regard, our teams are willing to facilitate terminology management by implementing industry standards.

    What do we offer to achieve accurate and consistent terminology?

     Assessment of requirements
     Evaluation of existing documents and glossaries
     Term extraction
     Term validation (candidate terms and existing terms)
     Establishing a TermBase covering unique translations of the terms
     Defining the most appropriate file type for TermBase
     TermBase maintenance during and after the production phase
     Creating checklists for terminology including normalization and parsing
     Providing terminology quality report
    What training should you offer for optimum post-editing performance?

    Transistent offers training sessions for your post-editors, terminologists, quality managers, project managers, or trainers. This service enables your team members to be well-adapted to new, innovative linguistic quality & translation automation solutions. Our training team defines the most convenient training program in line with your needs.
