Tree Transduction Tools for Cdec

Abstract

We describe a collection of open source tools for learning tree-to-string and tree-to-tree transducers and the extensions to the cdec decoder that enable translation with these. Our modular, easy-to-extend tools extract rules from trees or forests aligned to strings and trees subject to different structural constraints. A fast, multithreaded implementation of the Cohn and Blunsom (2009) model for extracting compact tree-to-string rules is also included. The implementation of the tree composition algorithm used by cdec is described, and translation quality and decoding time results are presented. Our experimental results add to the body of evidence suggesting that tree transducers are a compelling option for translation, particularly when decoding speed and translation model size are important.

TmTriangulate: A Tool for Phrase Table Triangulation

Abstract

Over the past years, pivoting methods, i.e. machine translation via a third language, gained respectable attention. Various experiments with different approaches and datasets have been carried out but the lack of open-source tools makes it difficult to replicate the results of these experiments. This paper presents a new tool for pivoting for phrase-based statistical machine translation by so called phrase-table triangulation. Besides the tool description, this paper discusses the strong and weak points of various triangulation techniques implemented in the tool.

Working with Bilingual Corpora to Enhance Legal Translation Competence

Abstract

Although there has been harmonisation work on translator training, different programmes still show a different focus. The current paper frames a training project aiming at developing Master’s students specialised translation competence while working with bilingual corpora and exploiting technology. Legal translation corpus design, analysis tools and false-friend management are addressed so as to provide further insights into such recurrent matters.

The Use of Verbs in Business E-Mail Communication – A Pragmalingu Istic Corpus Study

Abstract

Corpus analyses conducted with the help of special tools have become more widely used in all areas of linguistics, including discourse analysis, genre analysis and pragmatics. The paper presents a pragmalinguistic research study of verbs, carried out on a specialized corpus of authentic correspondence of (chains of) Slovene business e-mails, Posle-pis. The corpus tools Oxford Wordsmith Tools 5.0 and Sketch Engine were used for analysis, and the research was followed by a comparison of language use with two Slovene reference corpora FidaPLUS and Gigafida. The study confirms the hypothesis that business discourse via e-mail has inherent characteristics that are shown through the frequency of use of certain verbs and verb forms. Certain forms were also identified which prove the conventionalized language use of business e-mail discourse.
