International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation (IWSLT) 2005
Pittsburgh, PA, USA
This paper provides a description of TALP-Ngram, the
tuple-based statistical machine translation system developed
at the TALP Research Center of the UPC (Universitat
Polit`ecnica de Catalunya). Briefly, the system performs
a log-linear combination of a translation model and
additional feature functions. The translation model is estimated
as an N-gram of bilingual units called tuples, and
the feature functions include a target language model, a
word penalty, and lexical features, depending on the language
pair and task.
The paper describes the participation of the system in the second international workshop on spoken language translation (IWSLT) held in Pittsburgh, October 2005. Results on Chinese-to-English and Arabic-to-English tracks using supplied data are reported.
