MACHINE TRANSLATION POST EDITING (MTPE)

COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE FOR GLOBAL BUSINESSES

 

What is MTPE?


Machine Translation Post Editing (MTPE) is the process where professionally trained translators or linguists review and correct machine translation – also widely known as automated, automatic or instant translation, with the aim of eliminating all errors at a syntactic, grammatical, and sometimes even lexical level in the text.


The ultimate goal is to achieve publishable translation quality.


Thanks to modern solutions that implement machine translation, more and more new borders are being overcome, and this is a continuous process. However, so far there is still a great need for “human intervention” and automation cannot fully replace translators. Even the best machine translation engine would have difficulty with more creative and complex content.


The machine translation engine very often does not identify and understand which polysemantic words are the right ones for the context – it simply selects those words and phrases that are statistically the most commonly used in its “vocabulary”.


At first glance, incorrectly translated segments or sentences may seem like perfect translations.


Remember that MT is a time-saving tool, don’t rely entirely on it!


It is the immaculate linguist who is the final stitch needed to sew up a top-end result.

CONSECUTIVE, SIMULTANEOUS & CONFERENCE INTERPRETING

Your Speech, Our Voice!

Simultaneous interpreting is carried out in an interpretation cabin and requires sound equipment. Two or three interpreters are used for this type of interpretation and they need to rotate every two or three hours for longer events. During simultaneous interpretation, the interpreter translates into the cabin whilst the speaker is talking in front of the audience. This type of translation is used for seminars, conferences, real-time TV events, and it can be used in various areas such as software and IT, marketing, advertising, energy, telecommunications, tourism, entertainment and many more.

During consecutive interpretation, a speaker pauses after completing an idea and the interpreter proceeds to translate what was said. For smaller meetings, including one-to-one discussions, consecutive interpretation provides a discreet, personalised service that allows you to conduct your business smoothly and efficiently. Not only are our consecutive interpreters’ language skills superb, they are also highly personable individuals who provide the perfect blend of professionalism and approachability.

Conference interpretation uses simultaneous interpretation to deliver large-scale events to delegates from around the world. The booth/headset setup means that the event organiser can choose the best speakers from across the planet, without having to worry about which languages they are going to present in. Mitra Translations conference interpreters are highly skilled at translating presenters’ words in real time, so that delegates of all nationalities can learn from the speeches being delivered at the event.

Mitra Translations provides both simultaneous and consecutive interpretation from and to Central and Eastern European languages, and has the equipment and a team of highly-trained interpreting professionals to carry out seamless real-time interpretation.

LEGALIZATION OF DOCUMENTS

AUTHENTICATION OF DOCUMENTS, APOSTILLE

What is document legalization? It is the authentication and verification of documents. Documents issued by the Bulgarian authorities may be legalized to serve abroad, as well as documents issued by foreign authorities may be verified to serve in Bulgaria.

For documents issued by the Bulgarian authorities the procedure requires providing an Apostille by the National Center for Information and Documentation, the Regional Administration of each city, the Ministry of Justice and the Consular Relations Directorate of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Apostille is a stamp/seal for the authentication (legalization) of a document from the country in which it was originally issued. The Apostille is placed by different institution depending on the type of document to be legalized. The documents having Apostille are exempted from any additional form of legalization within the States, which signed the 1961 Hague Convention.

Some examples of documents that may be legalized/certified: Birth Certificate, Marriage Certificate, Death Certificate, Certificate of Successors, High School Diploma, Higher Education Diploma, Academic Transcript, Conviction Status Certificate, Power of Attorney, Trade Register Certificates, Contracts, Articles of Association, etc.

Documents issued by foreign authorities are legalized in Bulgaria accompanied by a certified translation into Bulgarian. It is simply made by a certified translator by visiting a notary and verifying their signature.

The goal is to ensure the flawless usage of terminology and appropriate use of professional expressions. In cooperation with the client, we use a terminological glossary in order to define the established terms. You can therefore be confident that your translation is completed by professionals with expert knowledge.

Proofreading is required for text intended for publishing or reproduction. We correct the entire text and then review the layout. Our professional proofreaders and editors can fix your document’s errors and improve the style, tone and readability.

No matter the size of your company, your written materials influence how everyone from customers to shareholders views your business.Pre-Print Review is a type of proofreading in which the meaning of the translation is compared to the source text once the translation has been supplemented with the original illustrations and visual documentation.
