Improved Monolingual Hypothesis Alignment for Machine Translation System Combination
Xiaodong He, Mei Yang, Jianfeng Gao, Patrick Nguyen, Robert Moore
Article No.: 6
DOI: 10.1145/1526252.1526254

This article presents a new hypothesis alignment method for combining outputs of multiple machine translation (MT) systems. An indirect hidden Markov model (IHMM) is proposed to address the synonym matching and word ordering issues in hypothesis...

Bilingually Motivated Word Segmentation for Statistical Machine Translation
Yanjun Ma, Andy Way
Article No.: 7
DOI: 10.1145/1526252.1526255

We introduce a bilingually motivated word segmentation approach to languages where word boundaries are not orthographically marked, with application to Phrase-Based Statistical Machine Translation (PB-SMT). Our approach is motivated from the...

Discriminative Machine Translation Using Global Lexical Selection
Sriram Venkatapathy, Srinivas Bangalore
Article No.: 8
DOI: 10.1145/1526252.1526256

Statistical phrase-based machine translation models crucially rely on word alignments. The search for word-alignments assumes a model of word locality between source and target languages that is violated in starkly different word-order languages...

A Chinese-Japanese Lexical Machine Translation through a Pivot Language
Takashi Tsunakawa, Naoaki Okazaki, Xiao Liu, Jun’ichi Tsujii
Article No.: 9
DOI: 10.1145/1526252.1526257

The bilingual lexicon is an expensive but critical resource for multilingual applications in natural language processing. This article proposes an integrated framework for building a bilingual lexicon between the Chinese and Japanese languages....
