Major MT Projects Worldwide
Primary Use - Information Retrieval
The Internet comprises billions of publicly accessible webpages while a full time human translator can only translate 5-8 pages day.
With the rise of internet as an important information and intelligence gathering resource, the use of MT provides instant access to critical, time-sensitive information, such as newsfeeds on financial or political development in the preferred local language.
