Manuel Herranz's curator insight, June 28, 5:10 AM

Kirti's fixation with DIY system is behind the times nowadays. Competition (from SDL to Kantan or Safaba talks about the many possibilities of having MT in-house and re-training loops). This is well beyond the basic DIY systems that flourished some years ago. 

 

Nowadays the conversation moves from in-source to out-sourced machine translation, ie, whether the company is going to rely on external vendors or make its own solution grow. If your technology and offering are based on lock-ups, that is fine, but the translation market has suffered many similar experiences in the past. Small and large multilingual language vendors want a certain element of control whereby they will be free to add and customize on their own as their needs increase. And that is precisely want we have advocated at Pangeanic via our PangeaMT for years.

Isabella Massardo's curator insight, June 16, 12:37 AM

Replacing “progress” with “innovation” skirts the question of whether a novelty is an improvement: the world may not be getting better and better but our devices are getting newer and newer.
