MuST-Cinema-PE is a corpus containing post-editing data of automatically-generated subtitles. It contains automatically-generated subtitles for 9 TED talk videos, their post-edited versions as well as process data (process logs, keystrokes) from three professional subtitlers in two language pairs (English into German/Italian).

The 9 TED talks come from the test set of the MuST-Cinema corpus. They were split into 12 tasks of equal video duration. For en->it, 1,199 subtitles were collected for subtitler1 and 1,208 subtitles for subtitler2, while for en->de 1,198 subtitles. These correspond to 545 sentences for Italian and 542 sentences for German.
