Workshop on Statistical Machine Translation for Curious Translators

We are glad to share with you the materials of the Workshop on Statistical Machine Translation for Curious Translators created within the Abu-MaTran project as one of the outreach activities planned.

This workshop took place in December 2016 at Universitat d’Alacant (Spain) and aimed at making translators and students understand how statistical machine translation works with the help of two tools: Bicrawler, a service that allows you to easily obtain bilingual data from multilingual websites, and MTradumàtica, a web interface with which you can train and test phrase-based statistical machine translation systems in a couple of clicks. This workshop builds upon the Workshop on Tools for Teaching Machine Translation that took place at Dublin City University last November.

We are making available:

– the workshop guide
– the workshop slides

All materials are distributed with free/open-source licenses. For a copy of the original files, just e-mail us as indicated in the PDF files.
