Multilizer announces the creation of new MultiMT technology (Multiple Machine Translation Technology) that allows automatic evaluation of machine translation quality and the automatic selection of best available machine translation. It is intended for better use of already existing machine translation services.
Machine translation is being used ever more widely. However, the accuracy of machine translations tends to vary from one translation to another, causing serious concerns to the users. Multilizer MultiMT technology addresses this very issue by automatically comparing the translations received from multiple machine translation sources and automatically evaluating their quality. MultiMT technology is based on the simple principle, whenever several machine translation engines return similar translations; those are likely to be appropriate.
MultiMT technology provides two benefits. First, the quality of machine translation can be evaluated. Secondly, selecting the best translation automatically improves significantly the overall machine translation quality and allows automatically discarding translations that are clearly mistranslated.
