Abstract: Machine Translation has become a reality in the translation industry. Over the past few years, translators have experienced the introduction of Machine Translation Post-Editing tasks in their workflows, However, the question of whether MT output has a positive impact in productivity is still open. In an experiment, the productivity of ten professional translators was measured when translating from scratch, post-editing Translation Memory fuzzy matches and post-editing Machine Translation output. The results and the productivity thresholds will be discussed.
