The way post-editing is carried out has been changing in the last few years. Traditionally post-editing was done on the "half-finished", machine-translated (static) document without much interactivity (a typical example might be an MS Word document with track changes). Later the unit of post-editing was broken-down to segments as provided in CAT-Tools and the CAT-Tools themselves started to serve as post-editing interfaces. Currently, post-editing has become more interactive. The post-editors are provided with several suggestions from MT (and possibly other sources) while post-editing segments. In some cases the suggestions are dynamically generated depending on what input is provided or confirmed by the post-editors.
