European Language Translation with Weighted Finite State Transducers: The CUED MT System for the 2008 ACL Workshop on Statistical Machine Translation” by G. Blackwood, A. de Gispert, J.

Abstract

We describe the Cambridge University Engineering Department phrase-based statistical machine translation system for Spanish-English and French-English translation in the ACL 2008 Third Workshop on Statistical Machine Translation Shared Task. The CUED system follows a generative model of translation and is implemented by composition of component models realised as Weighted Finite State Transducers, without the use of a special-purpose decoder. Details of system tuning for both Europarl and News translation tasks are provided.
