Human and Machine Translation Quality and Evaluation: From Principles to Practice

This panel will be held at the 6th IATIS conference <https://www.iatis.org/index.php/6th-conference-hong-kong-2018>, “Translation and Cultural Mobility”, and is intended to focus on human and machine translation quality and evaluation, with the aim of bringing together research from academic and industry settings that describes how they are combined in practice. This is critical to successful communication between cultures, and to the successful integration of translation technologies in the industry today, where the lines between human and machine are becoming increasingly blurred by technology. Quality evaluation affects the whole translation landscape, from students and trainers to project managers and professionals, including in-house and freelance translators, as well as, of course, translation scholars and researchers. The panel conveners have extensive experience of translation quality evaluation, within the ADAPT Centre and the QT Launchpad and TraMOOC EU-funded projects. In addition, their co-edited book (sharing a title with this panel) is due to be published in early 2018 by Springer.

Contributors might present work on:

- Evaluation of technology in intercultural communication

- Industry or institutional quality evaluation

- Domain-specific quality evaluation

- Evaluation of novel machine translation systems

- Or any other topic pertaining to translation quality evaluation such

as error typologies, quality estimation, or automatic metrics.
