Quantifying the Influence of MT Output in the Translators' Performance: A Case Study in Technical Translation

Marcos Zampieri, Mihaela Vela
2014 Proceedings of the EACL 2014 Workshop on Humans and Computer-assisted Translation  
We evaluated the performance of 15 novice translators translating technical English texts into German. Results suggest that translators are on average over 28% faster when using TM.  ...  This paper presents experiments on the use of machine translation output for technical translation. MT output was used to produced translation memories that were used with a commercial CAT tool.  ...  We would also like to thank the detailed feedback provided by the anonymous reviewers who helped us to increase the quality of this paper.  ...

An Initial Investigation of Non-Native Spoken Question-Answering [article]

Vatsal Raina, Mark J.F. Gales
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In practical SQA, ASR systems are used, necessitating an investigation of the impact of ASR errors. We show that a simple text-based ELECTRA MC model trained on SQuAD2.0 transfers well for SQA.  ...  One significant challenge is the lack of appropriately annotated speech corpora to train systems for this task.  ...  Therefore, it is useful to investigate the impact of the ASR errors on the system performance.  ...
