TitleAdvances in the Integration of Morphology, Syntax and Semantics in Statistical Machine Translation
AbstractIn this presentation, we briefly overview how the standard phrase-based statisticalmachine translation approach has been enhanced by tackling morphological,syntactic, and semantic linguistic levels of the pair of languages involved. Wefocus on introducing morphology by automatic post-edition of the translationoutput and semantics using vector-space models.
