Domain-specific datasets are very useful for companies that need to customize MT engines. All of these new corpora have been evaluated by Polyglot Technology LLC as an objective third-party MT training expert. “The customization of Amazon Translate with TAUS Data improved the BLEU score measured on the test sets by more than 6 BLEU points on average and 2 BLEU points at a minimum. These are significant improvements that demonstrate the superiority of this customized Amazon Translation Active Custom Translation for the Ecommerce, Medical/Pharma and Financial domain over non-customized Amazon Translate,” says Achim Ruopp, Owner at Polyglot Technology LLC.

TAUS has also completed integration between Amazon Translate and the TAUS Data Marketplace. TAUS now provides Data Enhanced MT (DEMT) service, a new layer on top of Amazon Translate, enabling a customized MT service that is offered on a usage basis both through the TAUS Data Marketplace and through the AWS Marketplace.

“As AI-enabled translation becomes more and more mainstream, the quality of the language data powering the MT models takes on high importance,” says Jaap van der Meer, Director of TAUS. “This collaboration with AWS allows TAUS to reach a much bigger audience with our data and data services”.
