You must log in before you can access most features of this event.

Schedule:This session ended at 18:50
Description:This session discusses ten types of errors and how they compare when made by human translators and by machine translation. You will get a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of each, and hopefully become more efficient as a translator/reviewer/posteditor. It will also touch on how adaptive MT technology and “creating your own MT” technology will affect the types of errors described here.
