Empirical Investigations of Machine Translation Post-Editing Processes

Translation Studies

and

Machine translation has long been studied and analyzed in an attempt to better understand and enhance the process. What has been neglected, however, is the study of post-editing and the mental processes involved.

In Repairing Texts, Hans P. Krings challenges the idea that, given the effectiveness of machine translation, major costs could be reduced by using monolingual staff to post-edit translations. With the goal of discovering underlying trends and discovering potential hypotheses for further research, he sets different groups of translators to work post-editing texts both with and without the benefit of the source text. He offers ups studies of machine translation systems and their uses, the current state of translation process research, and methodology, data collection, and data analysis.
