Estimation of parameters for machine translation without in-domain parallel data

PatFT ยป Page 1 of 1

A system and method for estimating parameters for features of a translation scoring function for scoring candidate translations in a target domain are provided. Given a source language corpus for a target domain, a similarity measure is computed between the source corpus and a target domain multi-model, which may be a phrase table derived from phrase tables of comparative domains, weighted as a function of similarity with the source corpus. The parameters of the log-linear function for these comparative domains are known. A mapping function is learned between similarity measure and parameters of the scoring function for the comparative domains ...
