NMT Customization Pilot Project
Training the Microsoft Translator NMT Engine
This month-long pilot project aimed to train Microsoft Translators' NMT engine and to develop a Neural Machine Translation model to translate the editorial and media press releases of MOSTRA in 2021 from English to Brazilian Portuguese. The project validated the MT engine for the above-mentioned purpose.
My team and I prepared a Statement of Work for our client with the following details: Objectives, including goals related to quality, efficiency, and costs; Project timeline; Processes and Workflows; Details Costs Table; Deliverables.
By the end of the month, we were able to give a clear, data-backed up solution to our client on whether it's worth investing in the training or hire human translators instead of the machine and we also created a Lesson Learned Video Presentation about the process.
