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...

Mixing Multiple Translation Models in Statistical Machine Translation
Statistical machine translation is often faced with the problem of combining training data from many diverse sources into a single translation model which then has to translate se...

Combining Word-Level and Character-Level Models for Machine Translation Between Closely-Related Languages
We propose several techniques for improving statistical machine translation between closely-related languages with scarce resources. We use character-level translation trained on ...

Hierarchical Chunk-to-String Translation
We present a hierarchical chunk-to-string translation model, which can be seen as a compromise between the hierarchical phrasebased model and the tree-to-string model, to combine ...

Given Bilingual Terminology in Statistical Machine Translation: MWE-Sensitve Word Alignment and Hierarchical Pitman-Yor Process-
This paper considers a scenario when we are given almost perfect knowledge about bilingual terminology in terms of a test corpus in Statistical Machine Translation (SMT). When the...

Head-modifier Relation based Non-lexical Reordering Model for Phrase-Based Translation
Phrase-based statistical MT (SMT) is a milestone in MT. However, the translation model in the phrase based SMT is structure free which greatly limits its reordering capacity. To a...

Improved Reordering Rules for Hierarchical Phrase-Based Translation
Hierarchical phrase-based translation model has been proven to be a simple and powerful machine translation model. However, due to the computational complexity constraints, the ext...

Sinuhe - Statistical Machine Translation using a Globally Trained Conditional Exponential Family Translation Model
We present a new phrase-based conditional exponential family translation model for statistical machine translation. The model operates on a feature representation in which sentenc...
