TER in BuildAnalytics

TER measures the amount of editing that a translator would have to perform to change a translation so it exactly matches a reference translation. By repeating this analysis on a large number of sample translations, it is possible to estimate the post-editing effort required for a project.

Using TER in BuildAnalytics

 To determine the amount of post-editing required for the machine translation outputs click on the ‘TER Score’ tab. You will know be directed to the ‘TER Score’ page.
