Shallow Local Multi-Bottom-up Tree Transducers in Statistical Machine Translation

Fabienne Braune, Nina Seemann, Daniel Quernheim and Andreas Maletti

The 51st Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL 2013)
Sofia, Bulgaria, August 4-9, 2013


We present a new translation model integrating the shallow local multi bottom-up tree transducer. We perform a large-scale empirical evaluation of our obtained system, which demonstrates that we significantly beat a realistic tree-to-tree baseline on the WMT 2009 English-to-German translation task. As an additional contribution we make the developed software and complete tool-chain publicly available for further experimentation.
