  • A new subtree-transfer approach to syntax-based reordering for statistical machine translation 

    Khalilov, Maxim; Rodríguez Fonollosa, José Adrián; Dras, Mark (2009-05)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    In this paper we address the problem of translating between languages with word order disparity. The idea of augmenting statistical machine translation (SMT) by using a syntax-based reordering step prior to translation, ...
  • Coupling hierarchical word reordering and decoding in phrase-based statistical machine translation 

    Dras, Mark; Khalilov, Maxim; Rodríguez Fonollosa, José Adrián (2009-06)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    In this paper, we start with the existing idea of taking reordering rules automatically derived from syntactic representations, and applying them in a preprocessing step before translation to make the source sentence ...
  • English-Latvian SMT: the challenge of translating into a free word order language 

    Khalilov, Maxim; Rodríguez Fonollosa, José Adrián; Skadina, Inguna; Bralitis, Edgar; Pretkalnina, Lauma (2010)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    This paper presents a comparative study of two approaches to statistical machine translation (SMT) and their application to a task of English-to-Latvian translation, which is still an open research line in the field of ...
  • N-gram-based statistical machine translation versus syntax augmented machine translation: comparison and system combination 

    Khalilov, Maxim; Rodríguez Fonollosa, José Adrián (2009-03-30)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    In this paper we compare and contrast two approaches to Machine Translation (MT): the CMU-UKA Syntax Augmented Machine Translation system (SAMT) and UPC-TALP N-gram-based Statistical Machine Translation (SMT). SAMT ...
  • Syntax-based reordering for statistical machine translation 

    Khalilov, Maxim; Rodríguez Fonollosa, José Adrián (Elsevier, 2011-10)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper, we develop an approach called syntax-based reordering (SBR) to handling the fundamental problem of word ordering for statistical machine translation (SMT). We propose to alleviate the word order challenge ...
  • The TALP & I2R SMT Systems for IWSLT 2008 

    Li, H.; Aw, A.; Zhang, M.; Khalilov, Maxim; Ruiz Costa-Jussà, Marta; Henríquez Quintana, Carlos Alberto; Rodríguez Fonollosa, José Adrián; Hernández, A.; Mariño Acebal, José Bernardo; Banchs Martínez, Rafael Enrique; Chen, B. (NICT/ATR, 2008-10-31)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    This paper gives a description of the statistical machine translation (SMT) systems developed at the TALP Research Center of the UPC (Universitat Polit`ecnica de Catalunya) for our participation in the IWSLT’08 evaluation ...
  • The TALP-UPC phrase-based translation system for EACL-WMT 2009 

    Rodríguez Fonollosa, José Adrián; Khalilov, Maxim; Ruiz Costa-Jussà, Marta; Henríquez Quintana, Carlos Alberto; Hernández, Adolfo; Banchs Martínez, Rafael Enrique (2009-03-30)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    This study presents the TALP-UPC submission to the EACL Fourth Worskhop on Statistical Machine Translation 2009 evaluation campaign. It outlines the architecture and configuration of the 2009 phrase-based statistical ...
  • Towards improving English-Latvian translation: a system comparison and a new rescoring feature 

    Khalilov, Maxim; Rodríguez Fonollosa, José Adrián; Skadina, Inguna; Braliti, Edgars; Pretkalnina, Lauma (2011)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    This paper presents a comparative study of two alternative approaches to statistical machine translation (SMT) and their application to a task of English-to-Latvian translation. Furthermore, a novel feature intending to ...
