30.8% Better Than Google NMT For English-to-Italian Regulatory

This English-to-Italian regulatory translator uses a Slate Desktop personalized SMT that’s 30.8% more productive than Google NMT.

A Slate Rocks customer (a translator) created a translation engine with his or her translation memories (TMs) using a personal computer.

These scores indicate this customer using Slate Desktop will likely spend significantly less time editing MT suggestions than if he or she were using Google for this work. This is because Slate Desktop creates engines with the customers translation memories and optimizes them to predict how the customer translates. While on the other hand, Google optimizes its NMT service for millions of customers with countless demands.

Google’s three (3) longest exact MT matches

The exact MT match (count) in the Benchmark Scores table (above) is the number of segments that Google NMT successfully matched to the translator’s actual work, i.e. Google successfully predicted the translator’s actions. The three segments in this table are the exact MT match segments with the longest length. This translator can expect to experience these kinds Google NMT results while translating these kinds of project.
