Edinburgh system description for the 2005 IWSLT speech translation evaluation

Philipp Koehn, Amittai Axelrod, Alexandra Birch Mayne, Chris Callison-Burch, Miles Osborne, David Talbot

Our participation in the IWSLT 2005 speech translation task is our first effort to work on limited domain speech data. We adapted our statistical machine translation system that performed successfully in previous DARPA competitions on open domain text translations. We participated in the supplied corpora transcription track. We achieved the highest BLEU score in 2 out of 5 language pairs and had competitive results for the other language pairs.
