This is a post that summarizes some tools that are quite useful in working with corpora during the MT system development process. As several screen shots are provided of the tools the link is provided.

This is a second post from the MT Language Specialist team at eBay, by Juan Martín Fernández Rowda . I have often been asked by translators about what kinds of tools are useful when working with MT. There is a lot of corpus level data analysis, preparation and editing going on around any competent MT project. While TM tools have some value, they tend to be segment focused and do not scale, there are much better tools out there to do the corpus pattern analysis, editing and the comparison work that is necessary to build the best systems. We are fortunate to have some high value tools laid out very clearly for us here by Juan who has extensive direct experience working with large volumes of data and can provide experience based recommendations.

Sorry for nitpicking... Jul 27, 2016

Kirti, we are at a linguistic site after all, and poor grammar here really looks offensive. The plural of corpus is corpora. In fact, for -ii to appear in the plural of a Latin word, the singular has to end in -ius.
