How raw is raw? The need for post-editing
Your translation projects and needs certainly have been made easier with the advent of machine translation (MT). This technology gives you quick and good-value translations for the documents or files you are working with for your projects. Yet the question regarding whether to do post-editing or not after the documents have been MT'ed often comes up.

When it comes to translating content with machine translation (MT), people in the industry tend to have very firm opinions one way or the other. Like with all technologies, there are good and bad experiences with the use of MT that can make translators very resistant to working with them again. Other translators, however, will swear by it, saying that MT is the best way to start translating content. The truth is that sometimes a project simply does not require the use of MT to complete it quickly and accurately.
Other times, using MT is the only way to finish translating content by the established deadline.
The best way to proceed is to get your content checked and see if MT is suitable for your project.
