Subject: Translation Candidates

I have a need to do "pre-machine translation" analytics to gauge the quality of MT matches before sending them to post editors and compare that to post editor productivity over time. After re-reading the translation candidate module, and I am not sure if this is a question limited to IBM.

The attributes "similarity", "matchQuality" and "matchSuitability"  has value assigned to each attribute is dependent on the tool adding that information. Another tool has no idea what method was used to set that value. Since these attributes can only be a numeric value, 0.0 - 100.0, we can assume that the larger the number, the better match it is. But if our tool was adding more matches to a file, you do not know how to set those attributes to be compatible with the previously added <match> elements.

David pointed out to me that internally, we would probably have to use the <mda:meta> element to add our unique information to each <match>.

For example:

<metagroup category="otm">
<meta type="segmentnumber">23</mtc:meta>
<meta type="documentname">test1.txt</mtc:meta>
<meta type="markup">OTMANSI</mtc:meta>
<meta type="MT-ServiceID">someMTEngine</mtc:meta>
<meta type="MT-MetricName">mtmetric_BLEU</mtc:meta>
<meta type="MT-MetricValue">90</mtc:meta>
<meta type="PE-EditDistanceChars">11</mtc:meta>
<meta type="PE_EditDistanceChars">5</mtc:meta>
<meta type="TM-DomainClass">primdomclass</mtc:meta>
<meta type="TM-DomainSubClass">subdomclass</mtc:meta>

If this is only limited to IBM, we can just use metadata to capture that.
