Localisation has long been regarded as an appropriate domain for the deployment of MT. This paper reports the results of a qualitative study which investigated the activities of professional translators working in a Language Services Provider. We analyse the observed work practices and highlight issues related to translation efficiency, quality assessment and teamwork. These issues may impact on the successful deployment of MT in a localisation setting but have not been considered extensively by research assessing the appropriateness of MT for localisation as yet.
