MT based workflow

I had been exploring how to integrate into my
PO translation workflow and had found this:

It does work, albeit with a few idiosyncrasies - it requires specific
because the generated format is not directly PO compatible. For example,
the line breaks between msgid/msgstr pairs are lost and need to be
restored. Also, it reformats the msgid strings so I made a special merge
tool which restores the original msgid's.
For details see

Of course, the msgstr content does require proofreading/corrections.
Nevertheless, it is a huge saving compared with translating from scratch.

Is anybody using MT (machine translation) in their translation workflow?
If so, what tools do you use?
