The Power of NMT

Neural Machine Translation (NMT) systems use a multi-layered, neural network to process information in a similar way to the human brain. This enables Exfluency™ to identify and translate content with greater accuracy prior to human review.

A paradigm shift

NMT has created a paradigm shift in machine translation. The technology uses Deep Learning to build a holistic understanding of text while requiring only a fraction of the memory needed by its predecessors.

Compared to phrase-based machine translation, NMT is faster and delivers better results. It is no surprise, therefore, that NMT is becoming the most viable and effective way to localize textual content for international markets.

Making the best better

Despite NMT’s extraordinary abilities, we believe that it is not the total solution. NMT has a way to go before being able to tackle especially creative and highly specialised content, for example.

To leverage the proven benefits of NMT and optimise the translated text for maximum impact, we take a hybrid approach. By bringing together the best of translation technology with human post-editing expertise, Exfluency™ maximises quality, speed, and value for money.

“Nobody phrases it this way, but I think that artificial intelligence is almost a humanities discipline. It really is an attempt to understand human intelligence and human cognition.”
