Machine Translation without Words through Substring Alignment
In this paper, we demonstrate that accurate machine translation is possible without the concept of “words,” treating MT as a problem of transformation between character string...

Rapid Deployment of a New METIS Language Pair: Catalan-English
We show here the viability of a rapid deployment of a new language pair within the METIS architecture. Contrarily to other SMT or EBMT systems, the METIS architecture allows us to...

Swedish-Turkish Parallel Treebank
In this paper, we describe our work on building a parallel treebank for a less studied and typologically dissimilar language pair, namely Swedish and Turkish. The treebank is a ba...
