Smooth Bilingual N-Gram Translation

Holger Schwenk, Marta R. Costa-jussà, José A. R. Fonollosa
2007 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing  
We address the problem of smoothing translation probabilities in a bilingual N-grambased statistical machine translation system.  ...  A neural network is used to perform the projection and the probability estimation. Smoothing probabilities is most important for tasks with a limited amount of training material.  ...  We are only aware of one work that performs a systematic comparison of smoothing techniques in phrase-based machine translation systems (Foster et al., 2006) .  ...

Multi-Domain Neural Machine Translation with Word-Level Adaptive Layer-wise Domain Mixing [article]

Haoming Jiang, Chen Liang, Chong Wang, Tuo Zhao
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Many multi-domain neural machine translation (NMT) models achieve knowledge transfer by enforcing one encoder to learn shared embedding across domains.  ...  To overcome this limitation, we propose a novel multi-domain NMT model using individual modules for each domain, on which we apply word-level, adaptive and layer-wise domain mixing.  ...  Introduction Neural Machine Translation (NMT) has made significant progress in various machine translation tasks (Kalchbrenner and Blunsom, 2013; Sutskever et al., 2014; Bahdanau et al., 2014; Luong et  ...
