International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation (IWSLT) 2004
Keihanna Science City, Kyoto, Japan
We compare the performance of several SYSTRAN systems on
the BTEC corpus. Two language pairs: Chinese to English and
Japanese to English are used. Whenever it is possible the
system will be used off the shelf and then tuned.
The first system we use is freely available on the web. The second system, SYSTRAN Premium, is commercial. It is used in two ways: (1) choosing and ordering available original dictionaries and setting parameters, (2) same + user dictionaries.
As far as the evaluation is concerned, we competed in the unlimited data track.
