Machine translation (Scout)

The machine translation engines are set up via the tab Machine translation:

In the frame activity, it is set in which situations the machine translation is activated:

       No machine translation:

When this option is active, machine translation is never activated automatically; nevertheless, it can still be triggered manually via the Machine Translation sub-menu.

       Translate only when there is no TM result:

When this option is active, the machine translation engines are activated when there is no TM match for the segment to be translated.

       Translate every segment:

When this option is active, the machine translation engines are activated for every non-translated segment.

In the Servers/programs frame, the available machine translation engines are activated and customized. The Servers/programs list box lists the available machine translation engines for the given language combination. This means, if no machine translation engine is available for the given language pair, no machine translation engine is displayed.

Note: If machine translation engine is missing from the list, please send a note to the MetaTexis support address: support@metatexis.com. If technically possible, the missing engine will be added.

Before a machine translation engine is actually used, you must activate it. To activate an engine, double click on the item in the list, or select it and click the Set selected server active/inactive button. Using the same command, you can set an engine as inactive.

When you click the Display available language pairs button, the available language pairs for the selected machine translation engine are displayed.

If special settings can or have to be made for a translation engine, they are displayed in the Options frame. In the following sub-sections, the available options are explained.
