Recycling MT: A Course on Foreign Language Writing via MT post-editing.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Far away as we are from FAMT (Fully Automated Machine Translation), we soon learnt to get the most from MT raw output. We learnt to see the bottle half full and found many sound applications in the translation industry. However, just a few have dared to explore the possibilities of using MT output for language learning. This
article seeks to explore the potentials of MT post-editing as a teaching method
to promote foreign language writing skills.
