Machine translation (MT) systems have improvedsignificantly; however, theirout- puts often contain too many errors to com- municate the intended meaning to their users. This paper describes a collabora- tive approach for mediating between an MT system and users who do not under- stand the source language and thus cannot easily detect translation mistakes on their own. Through a visualization of multi- ple linguistic resources, this approach en- ables the users to correct difficult transla- tion errors and understand translated pas- sages that were otherwise baffling.
