You can calculate your return on investment in SlateMT. Track your vital sign scores as you work with your CAT tool. Compare your scores without and without using your SlateMT engine and you can see how SlateMT impacts your productivity.
If your production scores degrade from the engine vital sign scores, you know that the project work is different from the translation memories that created the engine. In this case, you can consider updating our engine with new work.
As the engine improves, your ROI increases because you don’t have any additional costs associated with updating your engines. Online subscription services, however, may charge fees to update engines, which reduce your ROI.
