Title Multilingual Parallel Corpus for Global Communication Plan
Authors Kenji Imamura and Eiichiro Sumita
Abstract In this paper, we introduce the Global Communication Plan (GCP) Corpus, a multilingual parallel corpus being developed as part of the GCP. The GCP Corpus is intended to be develop speech translation systems; thus, it primarily consists of pseudo-dialogues between foreign visitors and local Japanese people. The GCP Corpus is sentence-aligned and covers four domains and ten languages, including many Asian languages. In this paper, we summarize the GCP and the current status of the GCP Corpus. Then, we describe some of the corpus' basic characteristics from the perspective of multilingual machine translation and compare direct, pivot, and zero-shot translation techniques.
Topics Other, Corpus (Creation, Annotation, Etc.), Machine Translation, Speechtospeech Translation
