Discovering your optimal translation mix with Vimeo and SAS

Liliana Pardo-Becerra | Senior Manager of Localization, Vimeo

Patricia Sainz | Translation Program Manager, SAS

Gavin Grimes | VP of Language Services, Smartling

What do we mean by "optimal translation mix"? We mean the way your translation work is divided between machine translation (MT), machine translation post edit (MTPE), and human translation. This panel discussion will help you understand how to determine the optimal blend of these three translation methods for your business, and what it means for your bottom line. What’s a ‘Translation Mix’? It’s how your content is split between MT, MTPE, and human translation. This panel discussion will prove that for most content, MTPE will achieve the same quality as human translation - while saving you up to 40%.

Evolution of a translator: How to embrace change

Christopher Wyant | Associate Director of Language Services, Smartling

The role of a translator is ever-evolving – especially today with AI everywhere. In this session, we're going to address why humans will always be in the loop, where we see their careers headed, how AI can help, and ways Smartling will continue to empower our supply chain of translators.

Quality at the source

Valerie Dehant | Senior Director of Language Services, Smartling

How do we determine something as subjective as quality is actually… quality?

A look under the hood: MT, MTPE, human translation

Alex Yanishevsky | Director of AI and MT Deployments, Smartling

The three main components of translations today are: machine translation (MT), machine translation post-edit (MTPE), and human translation (HT). This session is going to break down how the three work together, the ways that MT engines are evaluated, how MT engines are trained, and the importance of prompt engineering for large language models (LLMs).
