Proceedings of the 15th Biennial Conference of the Association for Machine Translation in the Americas (Volume 2: Users and Providers Track and Government Track)

In this talk I will present a proposed user study to measure the impact of potentially misleading MT output on MT-enabled scanning of foreign language text by intelligence analysts (IAs) and the effectiveness of a practical intervention: providing output from more than one NMT system to the user. The focus of the talk will be on the approach to de-signing the user study to resemble scanning tasks in a measurable way with unclassified documents.
