MMT will overcome four technology barriers that still hinder the wide adoption of currently available MT software by end-users and language service providers:
- MMT will be a ready to install application that will not require any initial training phase.
- The MMT system will manage context automatically so that it will not require building domain-specific systems.
- MMT will enable scalability of data and users so that no more expensive adhoc hardware installations are needed.
- MMT will create a data collection infrastructure that accelerates the process of filling the data gap between large web companies and the machine translation industry.
