Work on improving the evaluation procedures of Machine Translation systems.

Assessing the quality of a translation is a challenge and it becomes even more complicated when it is performed fully by a machine translation engine.

Lingua Custodia is looking for a six-month intern who could help in the conceptualisation and set up of different quality assessment methods that can be applied to millions of words translated.

Starting from our clients’ expectations (and biases), a framework for the assessment of our translation engines will include automatic controls for certain linguistic aspects and the human review of some carefully selected sample of texts.


  • Master’s Degree in Computer Science, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing or any related fields.
  • Master at least 3 of the following languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese.
  • Experience in Linux environment: Bash scripting. Proficiency in Python/Perl.
