Improving quality of customized SMT systems

At the MT Summit in Ottawa (August 28, 2009), Microsoft’s Chris Wendt  presented the findings from a recent pilot project using translation memories from more than ten TDA members to train the Microsoft statistical machine translation engine.

Main tests were performed in two languages: Chinese and German, with customization for Sybase iAnywhere. Additional tests also were run on Polish and Japanese languages with customization for Adobe and Dell.

BLEU scores went up significantly with increases between 22% and 74% compared to engines trained purely on Microsoft or general available data.
