Over the past few years, the localization industry has been playing catch-up with machine translation (MT) technology, but now MT implementation is becoming more mainstream. The next step is to look beyond and understand how we can fully unlock the potential of MT. In this presentation, a panel of industry representatives will provide their expert advice on optimizing MT. How can you make MT effective for you in the long-term given the diversity of your projects? You know that you should make data-driven decisions, but how does this work with MT? What type of tools are available to make using MT as painless as possible? Our panelists will be discussing these questions, plus many more.

Takeaways: Attendees will learn about ways in which to monitor MT effectiveness; best practices around MT optimization; and tools and techniques to improve MT usage.
