KantanMT Launches Machine Translation Kickstart Program

KantanMT consultants provide technology and business guidance to Machine Translation users, focussing on creating a long term strategy with high value returns.

KantanMT is pleased to announce the launch of its Kickstart Srategy Program, the first Machine Translation accelerator program offered in the industry. The goal of the program is to ensure long term strategy implementation for users of Kantan Machine Translation and to offer users resources and knowledge with which they can develop high performing MT systems, increase translation productivity and reduce overall business costs.

Throughout the 30 day program, KantanMT consultants will provide technology and business guidance to participants, focussing on creating a long term strategy with high value returns. After identifying the company's core translation needs, both parties work together to devise a 90 day action plan for implementing the strategy throughout all necessary departments.

The Kantan Kickstart Strategy Service is offered to both Language Service Providers (LSPs) and Enterprise clients and will be tailored to the individual businesses needs and requirements.
