A comparative study of the top 5 machine translation engines and the practical business impact MT has on website translation.
Weglot and Nimdzi Insights conducted this study to evaluate and compare a selection of leading machine translation (MT) technologies: Amazon Translate, DeepL, Google Cloud, Microsoft Translator and ModernMT. The aim was to identify what practical business impact MT can have on website translation.
The study involved a series of human reviews on five of the leading machine translation technologies across seven language pairs with a focus on usability, and evaluating performance.

Based on the analysis, we concluded that comparing the baseline quality of different MT engines might become an obsolete practice.
Neural machine translation as a technology has reached a certain level of maturity and the market-leading MT providers produce decent stock quality.
“The value of using MT effectively lies in having state-of-the-art engines handy. This study illustrates that website translations by contemporary NMT are highly usable and require mostly minor editing.”
