MT Summit XV is an international conference that every two years brings together researchers, developers, and users of Machine Translation technologies in industry and government. The conference reviews the state of the art in MT, its main trends, and practical applications.

What’s on the program?
The conference program for the MT Summit XV will include keynote speeches by renowned experts in the field of Machine Translation, panel discussions and presentations of submitted and invited papers organized in three program tracks – MT research,  commercial MT users, and government MT users.

Why attend?MT Summit XV will interest people from both academia and industry. For scientists it provides a unique opportunity to share research results with colleagues and understand user demands. Business participants will benefit from updates on leading-edge R & D in MT and have a chance to present their use cases.

The Technology Showcase
An exhibition of commercial and research systems will be held during the conference.

Tutorials and Workshops
Before the main conference two full days will be devoted to Tutorials and Workshops.

The Deadlines for Contributions have passed, but participation in the Technology Showcase is still open!

The Program Committee for MT Summit XV is accepting proposals for presentations in the three tracks of the program, as well as for tutorials and workshops.  Click on a link below for more information:

AMTA 2018 | Workshop | The Role of Authoritative Standards in the MT Environment

by Mike Dillinger | January 30, 2018

In this workshop, we will bring together experts from across the standards community, including from the American Society for Testing and Materials (now just “ASTM International”), the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the Globalization and Localization Association (GALA), and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These experts will discuss authoritative standards that […]

AMTA 2018 | Tutorial | ModernMT: Open-Source Adaptive Neural MT for Enterprises and Translators

by Mike Dillinger | January 30, 2018

Nowadays, computer-assisted translation (CAT) tools represent the dominant technology in the translation market – and those including machine translation (MT) engines are on the increase. In this new scenario, where MT and post-editing are becoming the standard portfolio for professional translators, it is of the utmost importance that MT systems are specifically tailored to translators. […]

AMTA 2018 | Tutorial | MQM-DQF: A Good Marriage (Translation Quality for the 21st Century)

by Mike Dillinger | January 30, 2018

In the past three years, the language industry has been converging on the use of the MQM-DQF framework for analytic quality evaluation. It emerged from two separate quality-evaluation approaches: the European Commission-funded Multidimensional Quality Metrics (MQM) and the Dynamic Quality Framework (DQF) from TAUS. Harmonized in 2015, the resulting shared hierarchy of error types allows […]

AMTA 2018 | Tutorial | A Deep Learning curve for Post-Editing

by Mike Dillinger | January 30, 2018

Does post-editing also require a deep learning curve? How do the neural networks of post-editors work in concert with neural MT engines? Can post-editors and engines be retrained to work more effectively with each other? In this tutorial, we demystify the process, focus on the latest MT developments and their impact on post-editing practices. We […]

AMTA 2018 | Tutorial | De-mystifying Neural MT

by Mike Dillinger | January 30, 2018

Neural Machine Translation technology is progressing at a very rapid pace. In the last few years, the research community has proposed several different architectures with various levels of complexity. However, even complex Neural Networks are really built from simple building blocks; and their functioning is governed by relatively simple rules. In this tutorial, we aim […]
