This LREC 2014 workshop "Automatic and Manual Metrics for Operational Translation Evaluation" brings together representatives from academia, industry and government institutions to discuss and assess metrics for manual quality evaluation of machine translation (MT) and compare them with well-established metrics for automatic evaluation, as well as reference-less metrics for quality prediction. The format of the workshop will be a half-day of short presentations, followed by a half-day of hands-on collaborative work with MT metrics that show promise for the prediction of task suitability of MT output.
