Following the success of previous editions (WPTP-1, WPTP-2, WPTP-3), we are organizing a fourth edition of the Workshop on Post-editing Technology and Practice!

Once again, WPTP will be an opportunity for post-editing practitioners and researchers to get together and openly discuss the weaknesses and strengths of existing technology, to assess post-editing effectiveness, to establish better practices, and propose tools and technological solutions that are built around the needs of post-editors. 

This half-day workshop will be held during the MT Summit 2015 conference, in Miami, Florida on November 03, 2015. It will be co-located with the ATA conference 2015 and professional translators are very welcome to attend and to contribute. This year's edition will feature two invited talks, as well as presentations of original research work. Hope to see you in Miami!
