DoMT Server™ Automates Machine Translation for Professionals

July 31, 2014



Bangkok, Thailand (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

In 2006, the Moses SMT Toolkit was released under an open source license as academic research software. Now, Precision Translation Tools (PTTools), maker of the pioneering Do Machine Translation Desktop (DoMT Desktop™) software, announces the release of DoMT Server™, a full-featured enterprise statistical machine translation (SMT) server for translation professionals for whom automated production of quality translations a competitive advantage.

Since its release, the Moses Toolkit has proven SMT is a viable localization technology. However, after years of academic development, Moses continues to lack essential features for commercial applications. Building commercial SMT production systems without these features is difficult and expensive.

DoMT Server is a robust enterprise server application with full-featured SMT capabilities. It automates SMT production in business environments with translation management systems (TMS) and computer-aided translation (CAT) tools. DoMT Server includes the functions and features missing from academic research software, without sacrificing the native components' capabilities. By using DoMT Server, translation professionals significantly lower the cost of implementing and operating in-house SMT solutions.

"After considering the available implementations of the Moses SMT Toolkit, Welocalize chose to collaborate with PTTools to build our MT solution. The simplicity of DoMT's extensible development environment drove our choice. The final server product was easily deployed and integrated into our globalization management platform. With a flexible and customizable end-to-end solution in place we can meet the MT requirements for our most demanding customer."

DoMT Server is more than a single-purpose translation server. It includes all the necessary tools to acquire, prepare and manage SMT training corpora; train, tune and manage SMT models; and deploy, manage and use translation engines for SMT production.

According to Tom Hoar, Managing Director of Precision Translation Tools, "DoMT Server significantly reduces the costs of in-house SMT production. Our customers leverage their existing technical and linguistic expertise and thus expand their competitive advantage without the distractions of converting academic research software to a commercial SMT platform."

All of PTTools' DoMT products give full control over all SMT processes to translation professionals, including freelance translators, small and large LSPs. DoMT products eliminate the security risks and ongoing subscription fees associated with cloud-based translation services. PTTools' learning center teaches translation professionals how to use their existing skills, localization engineers, linguists and translation memories to generate quality translations and extend their competitive advantage.
