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.
