2019 Proceedings of the Fourth Conference on Machine Translation (Volume 2: Shared Task Papers, Day 1)  
The paper describes the development process of Tilde's NMT systems for the WMT 2019 shared task on news translation. We trained systems for the English-Lithuanian and Lithuanian-English translation directions in constrained and unconstrained tracks. We build upon the best methods of the previous year's competition and combine them with recent advancements in the field. We also present a new method to ensure source domain adherence in back-translated data. Our systems achieved a shared first place in human evaluation.
