The Human Factor in Machine Translation, Hardback Book


Machine translation has become increasingly popular, especially with the introduction of neural machine translation in major online translation systems.

However, despite the rapid advances in machine translation, the role of a human translator remains crucial.

As illustrated by the chapters in this book, man-machine interaction is essential in machine translation, localisation, terminology management, and crowdsourcing translation.

In fact, the importance of a human translator before, during, and after machine processing, cannot be overemphasised as human intervention is the best way to ensure the translation quality of machine translation.

This volume explores the role of a human translator in machine translation from various perspectives, affording a comprehensive look at this topical research area.

This book is essential reading for anyone involved in translation studies, machine translation or interested in translation technology.
