OVERVIEW

This year's conference will feature the following shared tasks:

  • a news translation task
  • a biomedical translation task ,
  • an automatic post-editing task,
  • a metrics task (assess MT quality given reference translation).
  • a quality estimation task (assess MT quality without access to any reference),
  • a multimodal translation task

Topics

In addition to the shared tasks, the conference will also feature scientific papers on topics related to MT. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • MT models (neural, statistical etc. )
  • analysis of neural models for MT
  • using comparable corpora for MT
  • selection and preparation of training data for MT
  • incorporating linguistic information into MT
  • decoding
  • system combination
  • error analysis
  • manual and automatic methods for evaluating MT
  • quality estimation for MT

NEWS TRANSLATION TASK

This shared task will examine translation between the following language pairs:

  • English-Chinese and Chinese-English
  • English-Czech and Czech-English
  • English-Estonian and Estonian-English
  • English-Finnish and Finnish-English
  • English-German and German-English
  • English-Kazakh and Kazakh-English
