Call for Papers
AMTA 2014 Workshop on Post-Editing Technology and Practice (WPTP3)

Following the success of the AMTA 2012 and MT Summit 2013 Workshops on
Post-Editing Technology and Practice, we are organizing WPTP3
(https://sites.google.com/site/wptp2014/). 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 the AMTA conference, in Vancouver
(Canada), October 26, 2014. The format of the workshop was changed to make
it more interactive this year: the morning session will feature an invited
speaker and oral presentations of original work. The afternoon session will
include a longer poster/demo session preceded by short “poster-boaster”
presentations, and will conclude with a panel discussion. The panel will
involve actors from various areas of the post-editing scene (translators
and post-editors, translation trainers and scholars, LSPs, technology
researchers and industrials) and will be moderated by AMTA president
Mike Dillinger.
Topics of interest:

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

– 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

We also invite one-page descriptions of interesting tools related to
post-editing, including commercial products, in-house systems and open
source software. Authors should be ready to present demos of the tools
during the workshop. See Demo submission instructions below.
