 Will MT Replace Human Translators?

No. Today, MT systems are deployed either as tools to help human translators work more efficiently or as a "gisting" solution in situations where human translators are not or cannot be used.

Given the complexity of the phenomena that underlie the work of a human translator, it would be unrealistic to expect a machine to produce a target text of the same quality as that of a human being.

A proper understanding of MT helps users to choose how best to apply MT for time and cost savings while avoiding common problems associated with MT.
