While their quality is poor, the fact that they can run at all on limited hardware is an impressive achievement....

Translation or interpreting output, regardless of its human or machine provenance, can only be so good, so both end-buyers and LSPs are aware of the need to improve source context. Automatic content enrichment (ACE) is an emerging area of interest. Solutions such as Acrolinx and Open Calais are achieving increased traction in the space.
