Authors Juri Ganitkevitch and Chris Callison-Burch
Abstract We release a massive expansion of the paraphrase database (PPDB) that now includes a collection of paraphrases in 23 different languages. The resource is derived from large volumes of bilingual parallel data. Our collection is extracted and ranked using state of the art methods. The multilingual PPDB has over a billion paraphrase pairs in total, covering the following languages: Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Portugese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Slovenian, and Swedish.
