Post-editing is commonly performed on computer- generated texts, whether from Machine Translation (MT) or NLG systems, to make the texts accept- able to end users. MT systems are often evaluated using post-edit data. In this paper we describe our experience of using post-edit data to evaluate SUMTIME-MOUSAM, an NLG system that pro- duces marine weather forecasts.
