Technological progress has had a significant impact on the field of translation. Machine translation by computer systems is increasingly being used by translators, agencies and clients. The process of editing an automatically translated text is called post-editing. Since human interpretation of the text is necessary, post-editing plays an important role in machine translation. The automatically translated text has to be refined by human translators. Technical and scientific books are best suited to automatic translation, as the meanings a word can have would be more specific within these fields. Machine translation is a growing trend, especially in industrial translations. This book is compiled in such a manner, that it will provide in-depth knowledge about the theory and practice of post-editing. It also includes a detailed explanation of the various concepts and applications of this process. Those with an interest in post-editing and translation would find this book helpful.
