Post-Editing of Machine Translation

Call for Papers - Special issue of Machine Translation: Post-Editing of Machine Translation

Editors: Sharon O'Brien, DCU and Michel Simard, National Research Council of Canada

As the adoption of Machine Translation within the global translation
industry increases, attention has turned to the task of "post-editing", that
is, the revision of raw machine translated output. Until now, post-editing
was a relatively uncommon task in the domain of professional translation.
The increasing demand for this service has attracted attention from
researchers in the related disciplines of translation studies and machine
translation, as well as from users of machine translation. Consequently, the
number of research and practice-based papers on the topic has increased over
the last years, with attention been given to a number of important
questions, each touching on various aspects of the task, including cognitive
effort, productivity, quality, economics, user interfaces, training and
human-computer interaction. The time would appear ripe for a Special Issue
dedicated to research on this topic. We encourage researchers that are
engaged in innovative, robust and exciting research on post-editing to
submit extended papers. We envisage a Special Issue that showcases the top
current interdisciplinary approaches to research on post-editing. We are
seeking collaborations that are experimentally sound, and show awareness of
the current state of MT technology with regard to post-editing and of
existing industry practices involving that technology.


TOPICS OF INTEREST

In particular, we invite contributions that address the following aspects of
post-editing:

- Productivity
- Quality
- Active use of post-editing data
- UI design
- Automatic and computer-assisted post-editing
- Economics
- Ethical Issues (e.g. agency, IP ownership, etc.)
- Expertise and Training
- Language-specific issues

This special issue will provide a forum for this vital research to be
published and archived, so that it is accessible to the broad Machine
Translation, Human Translation and Computational Linguistics communities.
