Xcelerator Machine Translation Ltd is pleased to announce that both simplified and traditional Chinese are now supported on their KantanMT.com platform. China is one of the fastest growing markets for localisation services and products and accounts for a considerable amount of Asia’s 13% Global Translation Market Share. It is a consumption led economy with a growing demand for translations which LSP’s are taking note of.
Using KantanMT, members are now able to translate both Simplified and Traditional Chinese languages, in addition to fifty other languages in over a thousand language combinations. Members can manage Chinese MT engines using the same process as all other languages on the KantanMT.com platform; simply upload Chinese training data build a KantanMT engine and then translate some client files. Members can also use Automatic Evaluation metrics such as F-Measure, BLEU and TER to track the quality improvements of these KantanMT engines over time.
“We constantly focus on ways of improving KantanMT.com to make Machine Translation more affordable, more accessible and easier to deploy for our members so we’re delighted to be able to expand the number of supported languages supported which now includes Chinese.”, said Tony O’Dowd, Founder and Chief Architect at KantanMT.com.
The inclusion of Chinese Languages offers members more comprehensive language coverage and gives them the ability to respond to a growing demand for this type of translation service.

What is Xcelerator?
Xcelerator Machine Translations Solution is a new start-up that is focusing on making Machine Translation easy to use, inexpensive to access and available to mid-sized LSPs that are eager to integrate MT into their client’s localisation workflows. Xcelerator is focusing on the growing number of small-to-medium sized language service providers (LSPs) that want to or must offer machine translation to their clients.
Recent research on pricing shows that while a very small percentage of translation agencies use MT on every job, nearly a quarter of small LSPs, and more than half of medium-sized LSPs, will apply it if requested to do so by their clients. However, most providers don’t have the technical expertise to install an MT solution, train engines for their clients, and integrate it with their workflow. Xcelerator aims to fill that gap.
