Unbabel is an online translation service combining a Machine Translation Engine with a Crowd of Human Editors who correct the output of the software to ensure it is correct and fluid.
Unbabel brings human quality translation to user generated content such as emails, wikis and forums, that were too difficult and expensive to translate until now.
In practice, each text is first translated by a software program, and then corrected by human editors. By editing the output of the software, Editors make sure the message has the same meaning as the original, can be easily understood and sounds natural.
The editors on the Unbabel Community are a mix of everyday people with a passion for language and professional translators. They work whenever, wherever they like, on their laptop, tablet and smartphone, and get paid for each hour sent working on paid translations.
Unbabel is a new kind of online translation service that provides human quality translation at 1/5th the going rate.
Unbabel also has released a REST-based API with which companies can integrate translation directly into their workflow.
