We have prepared a short visual presentation concerning three highlights of the Abu-MaTran project when we arrive at the mid-term review. These highlights cover the following topics:
- Dissemination. The project has organised the first edition of a National Linguistics Olympiad in Spain, during the academic year 2013-2014. The Olympiad has been very well received with over 400 students taking part.
- Core research. The project has taken part in the WMT shared task in machine translation during the last 2 years. In 2013 we took part for English–Spanish and achieved the 4th position according to the manual evaluation. In 2014 we have taken part for English–French and we have achieved the 1st position (in a tie with 2 other participants).
- Applied research. The project has developed a machine translation system for the tourism domain for Croatian–English. The system is built using automatically crawled domain-specific data and outperforms significantly available on-line systems. Furthermore, we have integrated this system in a mobile application.
