Hybrid machine translation is a method of machine translation that is characterized by the use of multiple machine translation approaches within a single machine translation system. The motivation for developing hybrid machine translation systems stems from the failure of any single technique to achieve a satisfactory level of accuracy.
Although there are several forms of hybrid machine translation such as Multi-Engine, statistical rule generation and multi-pass, the most common forms are:
Language Studio™ uses a more advanced form of statistics guided by rules that also incorporates syntax based and multi-pass machine translation. The specific approach will vary depending on the language pair and domain complexity. Language Studio™ supports the ability to enable or disable the various hybrid components at an individual engine level.
