Service description

Full post-editing is aimed at achieving final quality that is similar, comparable, or equal to human translation. The goal of light post-editing is good enough quality for the intended purpose.

There are also even “lighter” post-editing processes, aimed at improving the accuracy and usability of long-tail content. These apply targeted QA checks that detect and rectify recurring issues.

Benchmarks and metrics like MT scores, LQA and edit distance, or more comprehensive A:B testing can be used to verify assumptions and fine-tune QA techniques. They also provide feedback for engine optimization.

Why choose espell?
