Advanced features of Tilde MT plug-in

Tilde’s MT plug-in for MateCat offers several powerful new features, which showcase the state of the art in MT technology. These include full-service customization of MT systems, run-time terminology integration, and Quality Estimation (QE) scoring.

With the Tilde MT plug-in for MateCat, users can not only acquire static translations from their Tilde MT engines, but also dynamically tailor the translations by assigning a client-specific term collection to use for a particular project.

The run-time integration of terminology to MT engines has proven to significantly boost translation accuracy and consistency. Terminology integration also allows an entire localization team to share a single MT engine, with each translator using a client-specific glossary for their specific project.

The Tilde MT plug-in also includes a new Quality Estimation tool. By activating the QE tool in MateCat, user can set a QE score—represented as a percentage point—for machine translation results. This saves translators large amounts of time and effort in the post-editing process.
