Groundbreaking MT quality of ICU strings — in any context
The AI team at Intento has been busy making strides to improve the quality of your MT output with context-aware ICU translations.

Considering that professional translators will find themselves confused by the ICU format, this is a massive step towards raising the level of your MT past even the ‘gold standard of human translation. Let us know if you have trouble using MT with other sophisticated file formats — we’ll have a solution.

Spending too much time cleaning up MT results? All users can now apply their DeepL glossaries when working through Intento to increase custom options. Glossaries decrease the amount of time and effort spend in post-editing by handling your organization’s specific terminology. DeepL currently supports glossaries for English to/from German, French, and Spanish, and you can apply them to Intento after creation in the DeepL API.

Learn how to make terminology a provider agnostic feature at GALA Connected
Make sure to reserve your spot at GALA Connected 2021 so you don’t miss Intento’s Pavel Doronin presentation, ‘Do MT models dream of your corporate terminology?’. Making terminology a provider-agnostic feature is a challenge. You can compile glossaries from central storage for each specific provider, use tags for applying terminology or set up an automated post-editing where neural-powered terminology correction of the MT output is involved. We did all these things, and we want to present the benefits and drawbacks of them.
