Dr. Lucia Specia - Quality Estimation of Machine Translation - 4th July 2011

Quality Estimation for Machine Translation

Abstract: Although significant progress has been observed in the overall quality of machine translation (MT) systems in recent years, it is well known that the quality of a given MT system can vary considerably across translation segments. The notion of quality and the level of “acceptability” of translations depend on the intended use of the translated segments, ranging from post-editing by fluent speakers of both source and target languages to gisting by speakers of the target language only. The need for models to assess the quality of translated segments in the various possible scenarios involving the use of automatic translations is becoming more and more evident and a number of efforts have been made recently in this direction.
