SlateMT is machine translation software that runs privately on your Windows PC, assisting as you work in computer-assisted translation tools like Trados Studio, memoQ, CafeTran, OmegaT, and more.
This study explores how an individual translator can predict his or her own experience when using a machine translation (MT) system as an assistive translation technology to perform daily work.
It is divided into two evaluation sets for 31 translators. One set uses Google’s neural MT (GNMT). The other uses Slate Desktop. The BLEU and edit-distance (Levenshtein) scores become benchmarks that predict the translator’s experience with the respective MT system, from the translator's perspective.

Why Use SlateMT?
Why Use <em>SlateMT</em>?
Generic MT service bureaus deliver one-size-fits-all quality. Some Internet services customize engines that delivers hit-n-miss quality. SlateMT tailors your personalized translation engine to you. It learns your writing style from your TMs and creates superior suggestions with your words and style.
Machine learning and artificial intelligence are advanced technologies that sound intimidating. Slate Rocks! specialized in creating user-friendly applications that make these technologies intuitively work for you. Technophobe or engineer, reuse your knowledge of TMs and CAT tools. You’re up and running in no time.
When you buy SlateMT, you own the license and customized SlateMT engines you create. No per-word fees. No hidden costs. When you subscribe to an online service, you rent time on their system and your customized engines are lost if you don’t pay the subscription.
After you create SlateMT engines, they automatically appear as machine translation providers in your computer-assisted translation (CAT) tool. We support you with Trados Studio, memoQ, CafeTran and OmegaT, with more to come.
