Using machine translation output as a starting point for human translation has recently gained traction in the transla- tion community. This paper describes cdec Realtime, a framework for build- ing adaptive MT systems that learn from post-editor feedback, and TransCenter, a web-based translation interface that con- nects users to Realtime systems and logs post-editing activity. This combination allows the straightforward deployment of MT systems specifically for post-editing and analysis of human translator produc- tivity when working with these systems.
