This paper presents the results of the newstranslation task, the multilingual low-resourcetranslation for Indo-European languages, thetriangular translation task, and the automaticpost-editing task organised as part of the Con-ference on Machine Translation (WMT) 2021. In the news task, participants were asked tobuild machine translation systems for any of10 language pairs, to be evaluated on test setsconsisting mainly of news stories.
However, it is difficult for existing deep learning architectures to learn a new task without largely forgetting previously acquired knowledge.

In this work, we present an effective method for semantic specialization of word vector representations.
In natural language the intended meaning of a word or phrase is often implicit and depends on the context.
In this paper, we propose a self-supervised method to refine the alignment of unsupervised bilingual word embeddings.
Although the problem of similar language translation has been an area of research interest for many years, yet it is still far from being solved.
