The KantanPEX Rule Editor enables members of KantanMT reduce the amount of manual post-editing required for a particular translation by creating, testing and deploying post-editing automation rules on their Machine Translation engines (client profiles).
The editor allows users to evaluate the output of a PEX (Post-Editing Automation) rule on a sample of translated content without needing to upload it to a client profile and run translation jobs. Users can enter up to three pairs of search and replace rules, which will be run in descending order on your content.
