When it comes to Machine Translation, being rule- based or statistical, and Post-Editing, there are many points of view; and mind you, all are valid!

I thought you might like to have all SimulTrans has ever written about these interesting and current topics in one single blog, so you can make an informed decision about your next project. 

And there is a nice freebie for you at the end to watch, so keep reading...

If you are thinking about whether or not to use Machine Translation in a project, then you should read this blog: When to use Machine Translation: to MT or not to MT that is the question!
