Abstract

The article investigates the relationship between human translation, post-editing and machine translation addressing, in particular, the controversial issue of translation quality. An overview of different methodologies and approaches is provided, identifying a number of perceived issues concerning translation in terms of process, product, and evaluation systems. A discussion on the observed tendency to objectify translation standards, and to automatic metrics, is included with a focus on the implications it may have for the research and translation community.
