International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation (IWSLT) 2007
This paper describes TALPtuples, the 2007 N-gram-based
statistical machine translation system developed at the TALP
Research Center of the UPC (Universitat Politècnica de
Catalunya) in Barcelona. Emphasis is put on improvements
and extensions of the system of previous years. Mainly,
these include optimizing alignment parameters in function of
translation metric scores and rescoring with a neural network
Results on two translation directions are reported, namely from Arabic and Chinese into English, thoroughly explaining all language-related preprocessing and translation schemes.
