Translation quality statistics

This page aims to give an overview of the quality of various translators available in the Apertium platform. Word Error Rate (WER) and Position-independent Word Error Rate (PWER) are measures of post-edition effort. The number gives the expected number of words needed to be corrected in 100 words of running text. So, a WER of 4.7% indicates that in a given 100 words of text, 4.7 of them will need to be corrected by the post-editor.

Precise numbers may vary due to differences in how sentences are selected to be evaluated. In some pairs, unknown words may be taken into account, in others not. Evaluations where unknown words are allowed will likely give me accurate numbers for postedition error, providing the corpus on which the evaluation was made resembles the corpus on which further translations will be made. Evaluations not allowing unknown words will give a better indication of "best-case" working of transfer rules.
