What is KantanISR and Why do I need it ?

KantanISR technology enables KantanMT members to perform instant segment retraining using a pop-up editor. The technology is designed to permit the near-instantaneous submission of post-edited translations into a KantanMT engine so that KantanMT members can submit segments for retraining, hence bypassing the need to completely rebuild the engine.

KantanISR was developed with usability, efficiency and productivity in mind as members simply need to login to their KantanMT account, go to their main dashboard and submit new training segments using the KantanISR Editor. This adding of high quality training data to a KantanMT engine will improve the translation quality of that engine and reduce post-editing requirements.
