Does NMT mean “Not My Type” or “Need More Time” to you? Neural machine translation (NMT) is everywhere — except maybe in action: machine translation (MT) adoption remains low. Do you have the feeling that your company isn’t big enough for MT? Are you constantly fancying implementing MT, yet have no idea where to start nor what to do? In this session we will present a case study about an 18-month research program within a company that led to an easy NMT strategy and a successful implementation — which is shared to help other small LSPs be successful with NMT. It’s not as hard as it seems.

Takeaways: Attendees will learn the first steps to being successful with NMT from day one and how to motivate their teams and linguists.
