Title Multiword Expressions in Machine Translation
Authors Valia Kordoni and Iliana Simova
Abstract This work describes an experimental evaluation of the significance of phrasal verb treatment for obtaining better quality statistical machine translation (SMT) results. The importance of the detection and special treatment of phrasal verbs is measured in the context of SMT, where the word-for-word translation of these units often produces incoherent results. Two ways of integrating phrasal verb information in a phrase-based SMT system are presented. Automatic and manual evaluations of the results reveal improvements in the translation quality in both experiments.
Topics Machine Translation, SpeechToSpeech Translation, Grammar and Syntax
