In this session we will showcase our approach to piloting machine translation (MT) quality estimation (QE) in order to fit this service into production. This approach considers QE scores from a machine learning-based system and uses these scores to provide a more educated guess on the post-editing effort. QE is clearly one of the most awaited features in the MT world. Using QE, we would expect to see a more precise estimation of the actual post-editing effort upfront or anticipate post-editing effort based on how a particular MT engine would perform on content.

Takeaways: Attendees will hear about a methodology for evaluating QE systems; use cases for QE operationalization; and a description of a technology framework supporting MT QE assessment and tracking.
