Use OpenAI GPT in Smartcat

Learn how to utilize OpenAI GPT as a machine translation engine in Smartcat, enabling AI editing and custom machine translation engine setup while ensuring data privacy.

Use GPT as a machine translation engine and access AI actions in Smartcat editor

Use OpenAI GPT in Smartcat as an automatic machine translation engine and/or to carry out highly contextual AI edits – in Smartcat, these are called AI Actions.

Using OpenAI GPT for custom machine translation engines

Create any number of custom machine translation engines based on OpenAI GPT by setting up machine translation engine presets. After you save a preset, it will appear in the list of available machine translation engines in the project settings.

Example of configuring GPT as a machine translation preset

Let’s assume a preset name of GPT-4. To select this preset – GPT-4 – as a preferred machine translation engine for a specific project, you would go to the project in your Smartcat workspace → Linguistic assets tab → Machine translation section → enable ‘ [x] Use machine translation ’ → click the cogwheel settings button → drag target languages onto the GPT-4 section as depicted in the screenshots below.

Using highly contextual GPT-powered AI Actions

Editable presets such as Shorten the translation are available in your Smartcat Editor toolbar. After connecting the OpenAI GPT key, you can create your own AI shortcuts for the Editor. On Smartcat, these shortcuts are called AI Actions and are accessible via a lightning bolt logo in the Editor toolbar.
