We investigate the effect of four different competitive machine translation systems on post-editor productivity and behaviour. The study involves four volunteers post- editing automatic translations of news sto- ries from English to German. We see sig- nificant difference in productivity due to the systems (about 20%), and even bigger variance between post-editors.
