CFP: Workshop on Post-Editing Technology and Practice

Following the success of the AMTA 2012 Workshop on Translation Post-Editing Technology and Practice, Sharon O’Brien, Lucia Specia and Michel Simard 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.

 This one-day workshop will be held during MT Summit XIV, in Nice (France), Sept. 2, 2013. The workshop will feature an invited speaker, oral presentations of original work, and a short poster and demo session.

Topics of interest:

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-editingAutomatic 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
