What is post-editing?

The most important differences distinguishing machine translation from human translation are the up to 50% of speed rate and cost advantages. The quality of raw machine translation may differ from that of human translation, depending on the amount of data loaded into the translation engine and the frequency of use.

In this case, machine translation may not be preferred by the client despite the speed of the process and in cases where the quality expectation for the translation is higher, post-editing comes into play.

The post-edit process allows for the unprocessed machine translation to be of quality, meaningful, and natural at least as much as human translation.

Your questions

What is post-editing machine translation?

Post-editing is the process of reviewing and editing of machine translation outputs by human translators to ensure that the final translation quality meets the expectations and fits for the purpose. Translations generated by automated machine translation software usually lack accuracy and need to be further processed by professional post-editors.

What are the types of post-editing?

Based on the quality level that must be achieved, there are two main types of post-editing; light post-editing and full post-editing. The aim of light post-editing is eliminating any critical errors that are present in machine translation output by implementing as few modifications as possible and generate an understandable and grammatically correct translation. However full post-editing requires adopting a more thorough approach to modify a machine translation output to make it equal to human translation by removing any possible translation errors.

What is machine translation?

Machine translation is the automated translation from one language into another without human involvement. It is a process where specially designed and developed computer software are used to translate a text or document instantly. The main benefit of machine translation is that it enables the translation of large amount of data in a short time although the output might lack accuracy and contain some errors.
