How to Guide: KantanTemplates

KantanMT HelpKantanTemplates™ gives members an intuitive and powerful way to customise, improve and deploy multiple KantanMT engines that share common training data-sets. It enables the usage of shared data-sets of bilingual and terminology training files across multiple KantanMT engines. It also provides an easier method to customise multiple Machine Translation engines and reporting tools to track progress.

How to use a KantanTemplate

      1. Click on the ‘KantanMT’ tab and select ‘My Client Profiles’ from the dropdown menu.
      2. You will be directed to the ‘My Client Profiles’ page. You will be in the ‘Client Profiles’section of the ‘My Client Profiles’ page. The last profile you were working on will be‘Active’.
      3. If you wish to add a ‘Template’ to another profile other than the ‘Active’ profile. Click on the profile you wish to add the ‘Template’ to, then click on the ‘Templates’ tab.
      4. Click the ‘Add’ button. The ‘Add Template’ wizard will now pop up on your screen.
      5. Select the template you wish to use from the ‘Available Templates’ drop down list
      6. Quick Tip: You can only select a Template who’s ‘Source’ and ‘Target’ language is the same as the ‘Source’ and ‘Target’ language of the ‘Active Profile’ e.g. If the source and target language of your profile was English to French, you can only select a Template which has the source and target language of English to French or French to English.

      7. Once you have selected your ‘Template’ click the ‘Add Template’ button.
      8. The ‘Add Template’ wizard will now automatically close and you will be directed back to the ‘Templates’ page where you will be able to view and use your.

Quick Tip: ‘My Templates’ from the drop down menu of the ‘KantanMT’ tab provides a view of ALL your KantanTemplates, while the ‘Templates’ tab on the ‘My Client Profiles’page provides a view of all KantanTemplates of the ‘ACTIVE PROFILE’ (i.e. the templates of the profile in use)

Tech Roundup: KantanTemplates™

The KantanMT Development Team have been working round the clock to improve the KantanMT platform, and the latest product feature; KantanTemplates™ does not disappoint! The new feature makes it easier to build KantanMT engines – improving Machine Translation productivity.

“The goal when developing the KantanTemplates feature was to make it as simple as possible for members to build and customise their MT engines. One of the things we noticed on the platform was that many of our clients have a core data-set that they would use to build multiple engines. Instead of having to upload the same data over and over, we wanted to create a way for them to upload the data once, and then be able to apply it to any profile they wanted” says Software Developer, Marek Mazur.

Why do it twice if it only needs to be done once?

When members want to modify or update the training data used in one of their KantanMT engines, they can do this on the ‘My Templates’ page. But, instead of manually updating the data for each individual profile, they can update their template once and voilà, the updates are then automatically applied on all profiles using that template.

Time is precious – don’t waste it

We are always happy when we find ways to increase productivity and save time. So by reducing the hassle of maintaining large training data sets for multiple engines, we can reduce engine development times by making it easier and more efficient to manage inter-related training sets. This helps our members be more productive, so with the time they save they can either work more or play more!

Consistency is king

KantanTemplates helps our members create data-sets of bidirectional training data. These data-sets (or templates) can be used by multiple KantanMT engines. And if a template is changed, all the KantanMT engines based on that template will be instantly modified, making it easier to ensure consistency across files.
