There are two features that make ModernMT really unique. Firstly, the machine's ability to translate while considering the content of the whole document (or “document-level translation”). This feature is available for all our service levels. Second, it is the ability to continuously improve by learning (in real time) from human corrections. This premium feature is available exclusively in our Human-In-The-Loop product.

We upgraded the technology behind ModernMT and made it 10 times more efficient than the previous one, because we leverage unused infrastructure and optimize memory usage and GPUs costs. This means that, overall, ModernMT has much lower management costs on our side, and we are happy to share this advantage with our clients by offering lower prices.

Google Translate and DeepL are generic systems, which means they do not adapt to each client’s terminology, they do not understand the context of the document, and they do not learn from human corrections. The unique feature of ModernMT is that it is able to learn (in real time) from human corrections, and to translate while considering the content of the whole document (or “document-level translation”), just like a professional translator would. Despite the superior quality, we still can offer prices that are comparable to Google Translate and DeepL because of the technology optimizations behind ModernMT, such as the leveraging of unused infrastructure.

Google AutoML and Microsoft Translator HUB are custom systems, meaning they are able to adapt to the client’s preferred terminology. The difference, however, is that only ModernMT is able to translate at document-level (considering the content of the whole document, and not just the single sentence), and learn in real time from human corrections, in an interactive fashion. Furthermore, we have upgraded the technology and made it 10 times more efficient than the previous one by leveraging unused infrastructure and optimizing memory usage. This means that we have lower management costs, and we can offer a higher quality product at a better price.

Quality - Batch and Real Time offer the same translation quality. HITL also offers the same quality with the first usage, but having the built-in feature of learning from human corrections, this product is able to improve in real time with the feedback it is provided.
Performance - Real time and HITL offer the same speed performance (95% of translations are provided in under 1 second from the request). Instead, the Batch product leverages unused infrastructure, therefore translations are produced as soon as there is some memory space available (95% of batches are translated in under 1 hour from the request).
Security and ownership - All products offer the exact same security guarantees, they leave you full ownership of the translated content and the possibility of cacheing your translated content.
