Following the success of the AMTA 2012 Workshop on Translation Post-Editing Technology and Practice (WPTP - https://sites.google.com/site/wptp2012
), we are organizing WPTP2. Once again, this workshop will be an opportunity for post-editing practitioners and researchers to get together and openly discuss the weaknesses and strengths of existing technology, to properly and objectively assess post-editing effectiveness, to establish better practices, and propose tools and technological post-editing solutions that are built around the needs of users.
The broad focus of WPTP1 was technologies and practices associated with post-editing. For WPTP2, we propose to place a greater emphasis on "technologies". We are particularly interested in attracting original papers on the following themes, but also welcome other ideas which touch on potential fruitful human-machine collaborations for translation.
- Post-editing user interface design and evaluation
- Tools for crowd and community post-editing
- Automatic prediction of post-editing effort
- Error-detection and error-correction for post-editing
- Innovative uses of post-editor feedback
- Innovative uses of MT data for post-editing
- Integration of MT with translation memory and other CAT tools
- Text pre- and post-processing for post-editing
- Post-editing and mobile devices
- Post-editing evaluation methodology and metrics
- Collecting and sharing post-editing data
- Best practices for post-editing
- Training for post-editing
Accepted papers will be published electronically, as part of the MT Summit XIV proceedings.
