KantanMT Releases New Language Technology Feature to Optimize Machine Translation Training Data

KantanMT releases the new Kantan Preprocessorâ„¢ feature, which optimizes training data for a more efficient and streamlined KantanMT engine building process.

Dublin, Ireland, December 24, 2014 --(PR.com)-- KantanMT is pleased to announce the release of its new Kantan Preprocessor™ feature, which optimizes training data for a more efficient and streamlined KantanMT engine building process. The Kantan Preprocessor uses a series of Search/Replace rules, based on KantanMT Regex (regular expressions) technology to dynamically alter data prior to its inclusion as training data for a KantanMT engine.

The KantanMT Community can now easily create, test and manage their customized preprocessing rules for training data, such as date formats and differing placeholder counts in the source and target text. This powerful and flexible approach to optimizing data, ensures segments previously rejected by Kantan Data Cleansers are now suitable for training purposes.

Benefits of using the Kantan Preprocessor:

Improved Data Quality: Rejected segments can now be easily edited or fixed using the Kantan Preprocessor rule editor

Increased Productivity: Production ready engines can be deployed faster, thanks to higher quality training data

The rule editor is accessible from an engine's rejects report, by clicking the gear icon to the right of each rule. The editor displays the effect of your rules on both the source and target components of the rejected segment in real-time, and via a user interface, similar to the Microsoft Word track changes feature.

“Increasing productivity and translation efficiency are key drivers for success in the translation supply chain,” said Tony O’Dowd, Founder and Chief Architect of KantanMT. “The Kantan Preprocessor provides a powerful and flexible way to optimize data, which then ensures a much more efficient and productive MT workflow.”
