What is Kantan Machine Translation?

Kantan Machine Translation (MT) is automated translation using the computing power, convenience and flexibility of the cloud. We provide all the hardware and software while you focus on the quality and precision of your translations.

Traditional Machine Translation applications have always been very complicated and expensive to use. The amount and variety of hardware and software required to run them is daunting. You need a whole team of experts to install, configure, test, run, secure, and update them.

  Cloud Computing
With KantanMT, you simply launch your browser, logon, customise the app and start using it. In many cases, you can be up and running within a few minutes!

KantanMT is a machine translation technology

Machine translation utilizes statistical and neural translation models generated from the analysis of monolingual and bilingual content. Essentially this approach uses computing power to build sophisticated data models to translate one source language into another. This makes using statistical and Neural MT a far simpler proposition than traditional rule-based MT systems.

  High Powered Computing
KantanMT requires lots of computing power to generate translation data models. The cloud provides an abundance of this computing power. KantanMT uses this to ensure high quality, consistent translations for you.


  • Your own MT Engine - KantanMT provides a personalised MT engine and secure data storage facilities for each client so you can configure it for your clients, their content, and the way you like it.
  • Auto-training – The quality of your MT output is related to the domain knowledge or understanding of your system to the content being translated. Using KantanMT, you can automatically train your engine by simply uploading your translation memories or other suitable content files.
  • Inexpensive & Flexible – You subscribe to the KantanMT service only when you need it by joining one of our monthly plans, and you can cancel your subscription whenever you like.
  • Bulk Translation – Using our advanced monthly plan, you can upload multiple documents to your secure data store and schedule a bulk translation of your content. This makes it easier to work with large volumes of content.
  • Translation Memory Connectors – If you use Alchemy or TRADOS translation memories technologies, you can download our free connectors that allow you to integrate your KantanMT engine into your favourite translation memory environment.
