“Analytical Approaches to Combining MT Technologies”

 

eacl2014

The talk reports on recent and ongoing work dedicated to analytical methods for a systematic combination of observed strengths of translation technologies. The focus will be on different ways of exploiting existing data on MT output and performance measures for system combination and for gaining insights on strengths and weaknesses of existing technologies.

Third Workshop on Hybrid Approaches to Translation (HyTra) 
Machine Translation (MT) is a highly interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary field since it is approached from the point of view of human translators, engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians and linguists. This workshop aims at motivating the cooperation and interaction between them, and to foster innovative combinations between the two main MT paradigms: statistical and rule-based.
