Medialocate USA, Inc., a full-service translation company that provides global language solutions to multilingual businesses, announced today that it has added KantanMT’s machine translation to further develop its technology offering.
The announcement was made by Stephan Lins, Medialocate’s chief executive officer, who explained why the company chose the Dublin, Ireland-based firm by saying: “KantanMT has distinguished itself as a first-rate technology company that embraces flexibility, simplicity, and an eagerness to react to our dynamic needs.”
Benefits to Medialocate of using KantanMT’s machine translation (MT) systems include:
- Ensuring major efficiencies for each client’s project
- Saving time on training data generation and collection
- Dramatically reducing post-editing requirements
- Increasing the quality of each project’s raw MT output
- Mirroring the client’s terminology throughout the translation, and
- Queuing translation jobs “in the cloud” which further reduces manual effort
According to Marcelo Rizzo, Medialocate’s Global Information Architect: “We ran MT tests into 12 languages and the results were extraordinary. KantanMT was easy to use, supports a wide variety of language pairs, as well as a number of stock engines, in a broad range of domains.”
“Their support is phenomenal. And with the addition of their API (application programming interface), integrating KantanMT into our translation management system was a breeze,” Mr. Rizzo explained.
Medialocate does advise that machine translation is by no means a quick-fix solution. It requires an in-depth review of linguistic assets, translation processes, quality expectations, and internal as well as external resource skill levels.
For this reason, Medialocate provides its Machine Translation Feasibility Assessment service to deliver the insights a client needs to make an informed decision.
