Improving Japanese-to-English Neural Machine Translation by Paraphrasing the Target Language

WS 2017  ·  Yuuki Sekizawa, Tomoyuki Kajiwara, Mamoru Komachi ·

Neural machine translation (NMT) produces sentences that are more fluent than those produced by statistical machine translation (SMT). However, NMT has a very high computational cost because of the high dimensionality of the output layer... Generally, NMT restricts the size of vocabulary, which results in infrequent words being treated as out-of-vocabulary (OOV) and degrades the performance of the translation. In evaluation, we achieved a statistically significant BLEU score improvement of 0.55-0.77 over the baselines including the state-of-the-art method. read more
