Machine Translation Service

Machine Translation Service

Machine translation can now perform a vital role in the translation process thanks to huge advances in the quality of the technology. These advances are why Andiamo’s Project Management Team is happy to offer a machine translation service for translations in select language pairs for specific types of documents.

Andiamo! offers machine translation using tried-and-tested software which produces high-quality output. This is then edited by our freelance translators before undergoing a final QA check by our team of in-house graduate linguists.

Though machine translation can be helpful for some translation projects, it is not an autonomous solution. Your dedicated Project Manager will discuss your machine translation request with you to find the right solution for your project.

Why do we offer a machine translation service?

Why do we offer a machine translation service?

There are several reasons why our Project Managers suggest that machine translation may be a viable option for you.

  • You require a quick turnaround on a translation.
  • You need a large volume of content to be translated in a short time frame.
  • You require translation for information or gist purposes only

Integrating machine translation into the translation process

We have integrated machine translation software into our translation memory system which can be applied when processing a large volume of files as well as complex file types like XML.

If we have already set up a translation memory for you, we can adopt a hybrid approach when applying our machine translation service to ensure documents are translated consistently with previous translations, whilst helping you to save money and reduce lead times when translating brand new text. At Andiamo! we’ll ensure that all your company-specific terminology will be used accurately within your translated text even when machine translation is used.

Ensuring quality translations with post-editing

Once your text has been processed by our machine translation software, we will select from our database of approved freelance translators to thoroughly post-edit it before we perform our in-house verification process and return the translations to you. They will be checking the text for translation accuracy, spelling, grammar, fluency, and will make sure that the translation is suitable for your target audience.

For clients who only require raw, unedited translation, either for information-only purposes or as a first draft for their own team of foreign language speakers to edit themselves, we can adjust our processes to deliver that too.

What type of documents work well using machine translation as part of the process?

Internal communications, knowledge bases, manuals, product reviews and FAQs all lend themselves well to machine translation as they contain large volumes of text and can require regular changes and updates to their content.

Our machine translation service is not the best option for every type of translation project. For anything particularly creative or nuanced, we recommend human translation to ensure it has the fluency and clarity of message required.
