Summary of the paper

Title Benchmarking of English-Hindi Parallel Corpora
Authors Jayendra Rakesh Yeka, Prasanth Kolachina and Dipti Misra Sharma
Abstract In this paper we present several parallel corpora for English↔Hindi and talk about their natures and domains. We also discuss briefly a few previous attempts in MT for translation from English to Hindi. The lack of uniformly annotated data makes it difficult to compare these attempts and precisely analyze their strengths and shortcomings. With this in mind, we propose a standard pipeline to provide uniform linguistic annotations to these resources using state-of-art NLP technologies. We conclude the paper by presenting evaluation scores of different statistical MT systems on the corpora detailed in this paper for English→Hindi and present the proposed plans for future work. We hope that both these annotated parallel corpora resources and MT systems will serve as benchmarks for future approaches to MT in English→Hindi. This was and remains the main motivation for the attempts detailed in this paper.
