Regularized Interlingual Projections: Evaluation on Multilingual Transliteration

Jagadeesh Jagarlamudi, Hal Daumé III
2012 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing  
In this paper, we address the problem of building a multilingual transliteration system using an interlingual representation.  ...  We also propose a regularization framework for learning the interlingual representation, which accounts for language specific phonemic variability, and thus it can find better mappings between languages  ...  Acknowledgements This work is partially funded by NSF grant IIS-1153487 and the BOLT program of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Contract No. HR0011-12-C-0015.  ...

Improving Bilingual Projections via Sparse Covariance Matrices

Jagadeesh Jagarlamudi, Raghavendra Udupa, Hal Daumé III, Abhijit Bhole
2011 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing  
Mapping documents into an interlingual representation can help bridge the language barrier of cross-lingual corpora.  ...  Our experimental results on the task of aligning comparable documents shows the efficacy of sparse covariance matrices on two data sets from two different language pairs.  ...  Such an interlingual representation is useful in many tasks like cross-lingual text categorization (Bel et al., 2003) multilingual web search (Gao et al., 2009) and so on.  ...

Multilingual Multiword Expressions [article]

Lahari Poddar
2016 arXiv   pre-print
The project aims to provide a semi-supervised approach to identify Multiword Expressions in a multilingual context consisting of English and most of the major Indian languages.  ...  If they are literally translated from one language to another the expression will lose its inherent meaning.  ...  Future Work Future work of the project has been divided in three subsections depending on their complexity and importance to the project.  ...

Mobile Speech-to-Speech Translation of Spontaneous Dialogs: An Overview of the Final Verbmobil System [chapter]

Wolfgang Wahlster
2000 Artificial Intelligence  
We discuss Verbmobil's multi-blackboard architecture that is based on packed representations at all processing stages.  ...  Distinguishing features like the multilingual prosody module and the generation of dialog summaries are highlighted.  ...  The sharable language resources collected and distributed during the Verbmobil project will be useful beyond the project lifespan, since these transliterated and richly annotated corpora of spontaneously  ...

Multilinguality in the digital library

Anne R. Diekema
2012 Electronic library  
One can translate the query into the language of the document, one can translate the documents into the language of the query, one can translate both query and document into a so-called interlingual representation  ...  Next, we discuss the aspect that differentiates the multilingual DL from the regular DL: crossing the language barrier and the resulting problems and challenges therein.  ...

Japanese/English Cross-Language Information Retrieval: Exploration of Query Translation and Transliteration [article]

Atsushi Fujii, Tetsuya Ishikawa
2002 arXiv   pre-print
We evaluate our system using a test collection for CLIR, and show that both the compound word translation and transliteration methods improve the system performance.  ...  For the second problem, we use a transliteration method, which corresponds words unlisted in the base word dictionary to their phonetic equivalents in the target language.  ...  Interlingual representation approach The basis of this approach is to project both queries and documents in a language-independent (conceptual) space.  ...

Review on Machine Translation from English to Kannada

Pankaj Dwivedi
2022 International Journal for Research in Applied Science and Engineering Technology  
Abstract: Interlingual is a machine translation tool that uses anartificial language to convey the meaning of reallanguages.  ...  Parallel data is a set of sentences in two languages that are sentence- aligned, meaning that each sentence in one languageis matched with its translated counterpart in the other.  ...  'Kernel Method for English to Kannada Transliteration' Machine transliteration is the process of converting a character or word from one alphabetical system to another.  ...
