There is much debate in the public domain regarding data quality, data security and data sharing, all of which do need to be openly addressed in order to eliminate the uncertainty for potential users. Vasiļjevs understands the fears: “MT continues to make many industry practitioners wary. Many are concerned with practical questions such as privacy, confidentiality and cost. On the one hand, they are burning to try MT, and on the other, they are unsure how to start.” LetsMT! encourages users to try MT in a secure, cloud-based environment with a friendly user interface that gives them everything they need to create their own customized MT engine and put it to work. . .
Wheeldon understands that while a one-size-fits-all approach to MT doesn’t cater to everyone’s needs, making MT accessible to the masses is critical for the evolution of the translation market. . .
