Industry Domains

Industry Domain Data

Each industry domain machine translation engine is trained using 10's or even 100's of millions of high-quality bilingual sentences. This same data is available as a base for you to build your own Custom MT Engines.

Additional context and quality can be achieved by combining Industry Domain Data with your organization's own data or with data created by other Language Studio tools such as Data Synthesis.

Powerful Custom Machine Translation Engines

Custom machine translation engines deliver notably higher translation quality than generic or industry translation engines. Runtime customization features such as that provided by glossaries provide limited control but when more control of writing style and vocabulary is needed a custom machine translation engine built on data that is matched to the purpose that the translations will be used for will deliver the highest quality and require the least amount of human effort in order to publish.

Simply upload your existing translations and click “Train” for a Standard Customization or work with the Omniscien team for a Professional Guided Custom MT Engine where we will synthesize, gather and create data for you.

Custom engine training and improvement cycles are fully automated. A new MT engine can be trained in just a few days. Incremental improvement is achieved by adding post-edited and new data. Incremental training can take just a few hours.

Control Writing Style

Most MT system focus on the ability to understand MT output. However, Omniscien has long promoted a different approach – to produce an MT output that requires the least amount of editing possible in order to publish. A domain helps, but even in one domain, there are many writing styles (i.e. Automotive Marketing vs. Automotive Engineering Manuals).

Due to the unique Clean Data MT strategy pioneered by Omniscien since 2006, and further advanced with the unique Language Studio Data Synthesis and Data Manufacturing technologies, it is possible to stylize and control writing style.

Metrics, Analytics, and Reports

All custom MT engines have detailed metrics and analytics, comparing Language Studio translation quality to many other third-party machine translation systems such as those Google and Microsoft. Comparisons against historical versions of MT engines are also available so as to clearly see the ongoing incremental improvements as new training data and post-edited machine translation content is fed back into the MT engine.
