Assessing post-editing efficiency in a realistic translation environment


Läubli, Samuel; Fishel, Mark; Massey, Gary; Ehrensberger-Dow, Maureen; Volk, Martin (2013). Assessing post-editing efficiency in a realistic translation environment. In: MT Summit XIV Workshop on Post-editing Technology and Practice, Nice, 2 September 2013 - 2 September 2013, 83-91.

Abstract

In many experimental studies on assessing post-editing efficiency, idiosyncratic user interfaces isolate translators from translation aids that are available to them in their daily work. In contrast, our experimental design allows translators to use a well-known translator workbench for both conventional translation and post-editing. We find that post-editing reduces translation time significantly, although considerably less than reported in isolated experiments, and argue that overall assessments of post-editing efficiency should be based on a realistic translation environment.
