Machine translation is increasingly used by ITU staff and delegates to complement the work of professional human translators and expand the scope of content available in translation.
ITU Translate is a Neural Machine Translation (NMT) engine developed in-house and launched in September 2019 as a joint project between ITU's Telecommunication Standardization Bureau and the Conferences & Publications department. The tool utilizes the Azure Custom Translation as a translation engine, exclusively fine-tuned on ITU data. This corpus includes the whole set of English to French/Spanish/Arabic/Chinese/Russian available bitexts. The ITU Translate ecosystem comprises the following services: segment translation, document translation, and website translation.
