  • 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 ...
  • Neural network language models to select the best translation 

    Khalilov, Maxim; Rodríguez Fonollosa, José Adrián; Zamora Martínez, Francisco; Castro Bleda, María José; España Boquera, Salvador (2013-12-20)
    Article
    Open Access
    The quality of translations produced by statistical machine translation (SMT) systems crucially depends on the generalization ability provided by the statistical models involved in the process. While most modern SMT ...
  • 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 ...
