Debunking the MyTh: Why machine translation is not a silver bullet

Despite its rapidly increasing popularity, machine translation remains highly unreliable and fails to live up to its hype. In this session, I will identify the limitations that persist in machine translation and explain why machine translation is inherently incompatible with high quality. In addition, I will examine issues associated with the post-editing model and propose solutions to some of the challenges facing the translation industry in this era of technology-driven change.
