Although Machine Translation is very popular for personal tasks, its use in localization and other business applications is still very limited. The paper presents an experiment on the evaluation of an English-Latvian SMT system integrated into SDL Trados which has been used in an actual localization assignment by a professional localization company. We show that such an integrated localization environment can increase the productivity of localization by 32.9% without a critical reduction in quality.
