Despite the promising results achieved in last years by statistical machine translation, and more precisely, by the neural machine translation systems, this technology is still not error-free. The outputs of a machine translation system must be corrected by a human agent in a post-editing phase. Interactive protocols foster a human-computer collaboration, in order to increase productivity. In this work, we integrate the neural machine translation into the interactive machine translation framework. Moreover, we propose new interactivity protocols, in order to provide the user an enhanced experience and a higher productivity. Results obtained over a simulated benchmark show that interactive neural systems can significantly improve the classical phrase-based approach in an interactive-predictive machine translation scenario.
