Johanna Gerlach is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Translation Technology (referred to by its French acronym TIM). Her research interests are in machine translation and more specifically in pre-editing approaches and their evaluation. She obtained a PhD in Multilingual Information Processing from the University of Geneva in 2015. Her PhD research was conducted in the context of the ACCEPT European project, involving the development and evaluation of rule-based pre-editing strategies for user-generated content. Before that, she contributed to the MedSLT and CALL-SLT projects, developing linguistic resources for German. Johanna also holds a Master’s degree in translation from the Faculty of Translation and Interpreting of the University of Geneva.
