Not necessarily. Most businesses do not use machine translation to reduce costs, but rather, to increase speed. Online machine translation, such as Google Translate, is less expensive than professional human translation, but even Google Translate has a cost when used for any large volumes. Professional-grade machine translation engines can be more costly, but can be useful for large volumes with a high degree of content overlap.
Is machine translation a good way to reduce costs?
