Title One Sentence One Model for Neural Machine Translation
Authors Xiaoqing Li, Jiajun Zhang and Chengqing Zong
Abstract Neural machine translation (NMT) becomes a new state of the art and achieves promising translation performance using a simple encoder-decoder neural network. This neural network is trained once on the parallel corpus and the fixed network is used to translate all the test sentences. We argue that the general fixed network parameters cannot best fit each specific testing sentences. In this paper, we propose the dynamic NMT which learns a general network as usual, and then fine-tunes the network for each test sentence. The fine-tune work is done on a small set of the bilingual training data that is obtained through similarity search according to the test sentence. Extensive experiments demonstrate that this method can significantly improve the translation performance, especially when highly similar sentences are available.
