Custom Machine Translation Revolutionises eCommerce and Auto Usable Content Localization

Dublin, Ireland, November 05, 2015 --( KantanMT, the world’s number one provider of Custom Machine Translation services announced that five billion words have been translated on the platform to date. Earlier this month, KantanMT clients reached a new milestone, translating 135 million words in a single 24-hour period breaking the previous record of 114 million.

The platform’s unique customisation ensures high quality machine translation output that is scalable to meet its clients’ real-time translation requirements. A recent platform usage analysis revealed that when compared to the average human translator output (2500 words per day) a client using KantanMT was able to translate and publish the equivalent of 54,000 human translator days of content in a single 24-hour period, which is the same as 18,000 human translator days in one 8-hour day. This represents an increase in translation productivity of 18000:1 (24hrs = 3 x 8hr translator days).

“KantanMT is not designed to replace human translators completely,” says Brian Coyle, Chief Commercial Officer at KantanMT. “However, for certain in-market applications such as online product catalogue translation, we can provide a fully automated 'useful' translation that is published without human translator post-editing".

Since the platform’s launch in late 2013, the KantanMT community has built 7,870 customised statistical machine translation engines and uploaded more than 140 Billion training words to
