International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation (IWSLT) 2004
Keihanna Science City, Kyoto, Japan
We present a bidirectional Example-Based Machine Translation (EBMT) system for ChineseEnglish. The prerequisite is a bilingual aligned corpus of ChineseEnglish sentences, and we describe the example extraction efforts purely based on word alignment. The whole system is designed to be language independent and as automatic as possible for construction. We present initial experiments which show that our algorithm can successfully generate better translations for the domain in question than the baseline rule based system.
