This will be an informal conversation about the usage and application of machine translation (MT) and the many different MT engines out there. The two buyers on the panel will each share their own insights and perspectives on why and when they decided to adopt machine translation, how they went about implementing this in their existing workflows, what kind of results they are seeing and how they are maintaining good relationships with their vendors. A third angle comes from Intento, whose main business it is to evaluate MT engines and do comparative research. Insights and results from these comparative tests will be shared in the panel conversation as well. Questions from the audience are very welcome and will be taken throughout the session. If you’d like to ask your question in advance, please contact the moderator of the panel, Anne-Maj van der Meer.
