A Systematic Comparison of Training Criteria for Statistical Machine Translation
We address the problem of training the free parameters of a statistical machine translation system. We show signi´Čücant improvements over a state-of-the-art minimum error rate tr...

Minimum Error Rate Training in Statistical Machine Translation
Often, the training procedure for statistical machine translation models is based on maximum likelihood or related criteria. A general problem of this approach is that there is on...

A Comparison of Pivot Methods for Phrase-Based Statistical Machine Translation
We compare two pivot strategies for phrase-based statistical machine translation (SMT), namely phrase translation and sentence translation. The phrase translation strategy means t...

Random Restarts in Minimum Error Rate Training for Statistical Machine Translation
Och's (2003) minimum error rate training (MERT) procedure is the most commonly used method for training feature weights in statistical machine translation (SMT) models. The u...
