Abu-MaTran at WMT 2014

The Abu-MaTran project was present at the ninth Workshop on Statistical Machine Translation (WMT) 2014, organised jointly with the annual Association for Computational Linguistics conference.

The workshop took place in Baltimore, MD, the 26th and 27th June 2014. Two papers related to the Abu-MaTran project were presented, describing the Machine Translation systems built for the English-French translation task. The data-constrained Abu-MaTran system was ranked first and second, based on human and automatic evaluations respectively.
