Machine Translation (MT) is a form of language translation where a computer program is used to translate text or speech from one language into another. This type of translation is done automatically and can be used to help people who speak different languages understand each other.

Machine Translation takes in information from a variety of sources, including written, spoken, video, and audio content. It then uses complex algorithms to interpret the meaning of the source content and output it into a new language. The machine translation process works in three main steps:

1. Input: The first step is to input the source content into the machine translation system. This usually requires uploading a file or entering text directly into the system.

2. Translation: The second step is to translate the source content into the target language. This is where the machine translation algorithms come into play and is usually done in the background.

3. Output: Finally, the translated content is outputted into another file or text box for you to review and use.


When it comes to translating content, human translation is often preferred, as it is more personal.  However, there are times when human translation isn’t as practical or cost-effective. It may require being in the same place at the same time, or you might need several different translators for all of the languages you need translated. This is where machine translation can be very helpful.

Thanks to advances in artificial intelligence and natural language processing, modern machine translation technology is typically just as accurate as human translation. It also has the added benefit of being faster and more cost-effective than traditional translation services, as you don’t have to pay a human translator. Not only that, but machine translation is also available in a wide variety of languages and can handle even the most complex documents with ease.


Statistical Machine Translation (SMT) is an automated process for translating text from one language to another. SMT uses statistical models and algorithms to analyze the source text and generate a translation that is as close to accurate as possible.


Neural machine translation (NMT) is an advanced form of artificial intelligence-based language translation that uses deep learning algorithms to produce more accurate, natural translations in less time. NMT uses neural networks to map out the source language and then generate a translation using its understanding of how words and phrases come together in the target language.
