At STP we have found the online course in machine translation post-editing designed by TAUS a very informative as it tackles the challenges which our linguists have been facing when post-editing the MT assignments that come from our clients. Also, the TAUS post-editing course provides a comprehensive summary of MTPE, and gives its users the opportunity to test their post-editing skills in practice and track the time spent on post-editing, which is why all of STP’s translators and project managers, as well as some of our regular freelance translators, have completed the e-course as part of their continuing professional development.

Our company is focused on translation and post-editing in the CEE languages. We understand this is the right time to offer PEMT services to our clients and we are aware of the fact that post-editing requires special skills and competencies from post-editors. That is why we have decided to use the TAUS PEMT course. This course gives our employees both a theoretical and a practical overview of PEMT. It is not only important to have post-editors with necessary skills, but at this relatively early stage of PEMT it helps us to persuade our post-editors that there is a possibility to find a win-win strategy for PEMT processes.
The TAUS course has informed me of the usefulness of Machine Translation and helped me readjust my thinking from revising translations for publishing to revising machine translated output in order to train an engine. At first, I over-edited the content as if revising for publishing, and that was quite time-consuming. The TAUS course explained how to evaluate and edit machine translated output to train an engine without over-editing or under-editing the content.
