With the development of Web 2.0, a lot of content is nowadays generated on- line by users. Due to its characteristics (e.g., use of jargon and abbreviations, ty- pos, grammatical and style errors), the user-generated content poses specific chal- lenges to machine translation. This pa- per presents an online platform devoted to the pre-editing of user-generated content and its post-editing, two main types of hu- man assistance strategies which are com- bined with domain adaptation and other techniques in order to improve the trans- lation of this type of content. The plat- form has recently been released publicly and is being tested by two main types of user communities, namely, technical fo- rum users and volunteer translators.
