I'd like to receive more information about the implementation of NMT for those using AdaptiveMT with a subscription.
Will NMT appear on the list of available engines?
Does AdaptiveMT needs to be manually disabled before adding NMT?
Is the existing data from SMT going to be used for the NMT?
A bit unrelated, will the PEMT certification guide be updated with more NMT information?
To answer your questions, please allow me to first take some time to clarify SDL's machine translation offerings.
SDL has been evolving our own in-house machine translation offering to…
SDL has been evolving our own in-house machine translation offering to our customers for over 15 years. As the technology evolves and advances, SDL has made the MT capabilities available to various product suites (such as Trados Studio, Language Cloud, etc) while also having the MT capabilities as standalone products (BeGlobal and ETS).
AdaptiveMT is a unique and innovative capability that SDL developed on our Statistical Machine Translation (SMT) technology and made available to Trados Studio, with subscription managed through Language Cloud.
In the meanwhile, SDL continue to develop our core MT products (BeGlobal and ETS), now branded under "SDL Machine Translation Cloud and Edge", respectively. Our neural machine translation (NMT) breakthroughs are introduced and delivered in this product line. Future advancement and new capabilities around machine translation will always be made to this product line first, unlike what happened with AdaptiveMT where it was only integrated for Trados Studio.
So now getting toward your questions --
As machine translation capabilities sit outside of the Trados Studio tool, what MT you can use depends on the capabilities exposed by either 1) an embedded connection or 2) a plugin.
To your specific questions:
Claudia Alvis said:Will NMT appear on the list of available engines?
It should if you do the update described in #1 Embedded connection above.
Claudia Alvis said:Does AdaptiveMT needs to be manually disabled before adding NMT?
Same as above, and the settings are exposed in the embedded connection "SDL Language Cloud translation resources". Alternatively, if you have a subscription to SDL MT and can use the plugin, then the plugin will just be another resource and you shouldn't have to disable another resource.
Claudia Alvis said:Is the existing data from SMT going to be used for the NMT?
No, AdaptiveMT and the NMT provided through SDL MT product are independent.
Quite a long response, but I do hope that help answer your questions.
Hi Quinn Lam. I'm so sorry for the late reply, I put it on my to-do list and completely forgot about it. I really appreciate your detailed answer and now everything is super clear.
