Machine Translation (MT) can provide greater benefits and less frustration as long as reasonable expectations are set and complementary strategies are put into place. One of these strategies consists in avoiding unnecessary stylistic corrections during manual MT post-editing. This requires training and clear guidelines that must be learned and put into practice. Finally, automatic post-editing can be implemented before starting manual post-editing, which will improve the final linguistic quality and reduce manual post-editing.
