On the Effective Deployment of Current Machine Translation Technology

-Jesús González Rubio

Abstract: 

Machine translation is a fundamental technology that is gaining more im- portance each day in our multilingual society. Companies and particulars are turning their attention to machine translation since it dramatically cuts down their expenses on translation and interpreting. However, the output of current machine translation systems is still far from the quality of translations gen- erated by human experts. The overall goal of this thesis is to narrow down this quality gap by developing new methodologies and tools that improve the broader and more efficient deployment of machine translation technology.
