SYSTRAN’s Continuing Neural MT Evolution

by Kirti Vashee on eMpTy Pages, a blog about translation technology, localization and collaboration

Recently, I had the opportunity and kind invitation to attend the SYSTRAN community day event where many members of their product development, marketing, and management team gathered with major customers and partners.

The objective was to share information about the continuing evolution of their new Pure Neural MT (PNMT) technology,  share detailed PNMT output quality evaluation results, and provide initial customer user experience data with the new technology. Also, naturally such an event creates a more active and intense dialogue between company employees and customers and partners.  This, I think has substantial value for a company that seeks to align product offerings with its customer’s actual needs.

Ongoing Enhancements of the PNMT Product Offering

The event made it clear that SYSTRAN is well down the NMT path, possibly years ahead of other MT vendors, and provided a review of the current status of their rapidly evolving PNMT technology.

Pure Neural™ Machine Translation (PNMT™) Beta Test

by Lori Thicke Founder & CEO at Lexcelera

neural

Yesterday I translated our company presentation with Systran’s new Pure Neural™ Machine Translation (PNMT™) engine, and I was amazed at the results.

The presentation in question was a complete overview of all of our services, 59 pages of French text that was edited three separate times to make sure the quality was perfect. (Thanks Faten, Boris and Laurence!)

Then, two days ago, just as I was putting the finishing touches on the presentation for a response to an RFP (Request For Proposals), I found out that our prospective client (a major French manufacturer) wanted our response in English. I had just one day to deliver 59 pages of perfect English content!

Let me give you some background to explain why I, the CEO of a translation company, decided to use Neural Machine Translation for one of our most important commercial documents for one of our most important tenders.

SYSTRAN is far along the NMT path

A Deep Dive into SYSTRAN’s Neural Machine Translation (NMT) Technology

by Kirti Vashee on eMpTy Pages, a blog about translation technology, localization and collaboration

Neural Machine Translation

[…] So, I recently had a conversation with Jean Senellart , Global CTO and SYSTRAN SAS Director General, to find out more about their new NMT technology. He was very forthcoming, and responded to all my questions with useful details, anecdotes and enthusiasm. The conversation only reinforced in my mind that “real MT system development” is something best left to experts, and not something that even large LSPs should dabble with. The reality and complexity of NMT development pushes the limits of MT even further away from the DIY mirage.

In the text below, I have put quotes around everything that I have gotten directly from SYSTRAN material or from Jean Senellart (JAS) to make it clear that I am not interpreting. I have done some minor editing to facilitate readability and “English flow” and added comments in italics within his quotes where this is done.
