Human Aided Machine Translation

abbreviation(s): HAMT
definition: We call Human-aided Machine Translation all systems and techniques which rely on real automation of the translation function when porting a text from one language to another. As opposed to full Machine Translation, human-aided MT does not fully rely on computational translation, but assists this process by pre-editing and post-editing steps, possibly also interactive human intervention to steer or select from alternative translations. Translation of real-time spoken language, by contrast, does not allow for human intervention, except for negotiation functions, such as clarification dialogues.
