We have come a long way since the days of translation memory systems and human translation to current automated systems with translation management systems (TMSs) utilizing machine translation (MT) and automatic file transfer. We are integrating the system and sharing MT results automatically with SP2013. In this presentation, we will describe the steps we took to set up the processes including how to work with tool and MT vendors, and how to train and tune MT engines to achieve our objectives. We will share our roadmap for the future to better support our worldwide users.

Takeaways: Attendees will learn about factors to consider for TMS automation: integrating MT with a content management system delivery, MT engines training and quality control of deliverables.
