Phrase-Based Backoff Models for Machine Translation of Highly Inflected Languages

Phrase-Based Backoff Models for Machine Translation of Highly Inflected Languages
We propose a backoff model for phrasebased machine translation that translates unseen word forms in foreign-language text by hierarchical morphological abstractions at the word and the phrase level. The model is evaluated on the Europarl corpus for German-English and FinnishEnglish translation and shows improvements over state-of-the-art phrase-based models.
