Workshop on Post-Editing Technology and Practice (WPTP2) at MT
Summit XIV, Nice, September 2nd, 2013

Call for Papers

Following the success of the AMTA 2012 Workshop on Translation
Post-Editing Technology and Practice (WPTP:
https://sites.google.com/site/wptp2012), we are organizing WPTP2.
Once again, this workshop will be an opportunity for post-editing
practitioners and researchers to get together and openly discuss
the weaknesses and strengths of existing technology, to properly
and objectively assess post-editing effectiveness, to establish
better practices, and propose tools and technological
post-editing solutions that are built around the needs of users.

This one-day workshop will be held during MT Summit XIV, in Nice
(France), Sept. 2, 2013. The workshop will feature an invited
speaker, oral presentations of original work, and a short poster
and demo session.

Topics of interest:

The broad focus of WPTP1 was technologies and practices
associated with post-editing. For WPTP2, we propose to place a
greater emphasis on "technologies". We are particularly
interested in attracting original papers on the following themes,
but also welcome other ideas which touch on potential fruitful
human-machine collaborations for translation:

    Post-editing user interface design and evaluation

    Tools for crowd and community post-editing

    Automatic prediction of post-editing effort

    Error-detection and error-correction for post-editing

    Innovative uses of post-editor feedback

    Innovative uses of MT data for post-editing

    Integration of MT with translation memory and other CAT tools

    Text pre- and post-processing for post-editing

    Post-editing and mobile devices

    Post-editing evaluation methodology and metrics

    Collecting and sharing post-editing data

    Best practices for post-editing

    Training for post-editing


We also invite one-page descriptions of interesting tools related
to post-editing, including commercial products, in-house systems
and open source software. Authors should be ready to present
demos of the tools during the workshop. See Demo submission
instructions below.
