Startups Join Forces to Create Robust Translation Environment
Palo Alto, CA. May 4th, 2017
Two Bay Area startups have announced their partnership. Translation Management Software (TMS) provider, smartCAT and Lilt, an interactive and adaptive Machine Translation (MT) tool, have partnered to combine the latest in MT technology with a robust collaborative translation environment.
Lilt’s adaptive MT is now available within the smartCAT editor, giving smartCAT’s customers access to this technology in a single activation click.
“Lilt fit just right into the smartCAT ecosystem. We loved the futuristic approach to machine translation it promotes, so delivering the technology to our users instantly became our priority. What makes this integration so special is that it takes smartCAT’s unique real-time multi-user collaboration to the next level. Each time a translator confirms a segment, the engine instantly trains and provides the correct suggestions to all the participants in the project, helping them to maintain consistency across the text. Despite the technology behind the new feature being complex and unfamiliar, we made sure it’s intuitive and easy to use.” said Ivan Smolnikov, CEO at smartCAT.
“One of Lilt’s goals is to democratize access to the latest natural language technology. smartCAT already provides a workflow tool previously inaccessible to many LSPs and end-customers. With the Lilt integration, smartCAT’s customers can now effortlessly deploy interactive/adaptive machine translation that gives revolutionary productivity gains without the pain of post-editing.” said Spence Green, CEO at Lilt.
