In recent years, machine translation (MT) has begun to take its place alongside translation memory, terminology management and workflow automation as a key tool in large-scale professional translation projects. Nevertheless, misconceptions abound about the ways in which MT affects the professional translation work process. Effective, efficient and appropriate use of MT in professional translation production is a complex affair that requires an awareness and understanding of the factors that shape the success of MT deployments in terms of both systems development and return on investment (ROI).
