Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We investigate novel types of assistance for human translators, based on statistical machine translation methods. We developed Caitra, a tool that makes suggestions for sentence completion, shows word and phrase translation options, and allows postediting of machine translation output. A user study validates the types of assistance and provides insight into the human translation process.
