Machine translation (MT) is translation which is carried out by a machine. In this case, it is SDL’s very own MT provider – SDL Language Cloud. When uploading a file to the Editor, it will use MT to translate the file to help speed up the process as it will mean you may need to just make some amendments to these suggestions, rather than having to translate the entire document from scratch.
Once you have amended (if necessary) the suggestions provided by SDL Language Cloud, you can then save these to your very own translation memory (TM), integrated into the Editor. Please see the below drop-down box for more information about this technology.
Please note: Pre-translation of files in the SDL Online Editor using MT is available in over 100 langauge pairs. Click here to see the full list
