How to Apply Automated Post-Editing


KantanMT allows automated post-editing of the translation output thanks to Post Editing rules, which consist of search and replace patterns based on regular expressions (REGEX). When a rule file is uploaded in the Translation tab of an engine, all translated output will be automatically post-edited by such rules, if they match any pattern.

This is what a typical rule looks like:

To apply the rules, you only need to upload the rule file in the Translation tab. If you want your rules to apply both in API and in Batch Translation mode, you will need to name your file api.pex.

Another way to add and apply these rules is through the KantanMT Rule Editor.
