The evaluation campaign of the 19th International Conference on Spoken Language Translation featured eight shared tasks: (i) Simultaneous speech translation, (ii) Offline speech translation, (iii) Speech to speech translation, (iv) Low-resource speech translation, (v) Multilingual speech translation, (vi) Dialect speech translation, (vii) Formality control for speech translation, (viii) Isometric speech translation.
This paper describes the joint submission to the IWSLT 2019 English to Czech task by Samsung RD Institute, Poland, and the University of Edinburgh.

We participated in all tracks of the WMT 2021 efficient machine translation task: single-core CPU, multi-core CPU, and GPU hardware with throughput and latency conditions.
The machine translation efficiency task challenges participants to make their systems faster and smaller with minimal impact on translation quality.

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.
We describe the joint submission of the University of Edinburgh and Charles University, Prague, to the Czech/English track in the WMT 2020 Shared Task on News Translation.
Automatic metrics are commonly used as the exclusive tool for declaring the superiority of one machine translation system's quality over another.
Recent studies emphasize the need of document context in human evaluation of machine translations, but little research has been done on the impact of user interfaces on annotator productivity and the reliability of assessments.
Grammatical Error Correction (GEC) is the task of automatically detecting and correcting all types of errors in written text.

In the news task, participants were asked to build machine translation systems for any of 11 language pairs, to be evaluated on test sets consisting mainly of news stories.
We participated in all tracks of the Workshop on Neural Generation and Translation 2020 Efficiency Shared Task: single-core CPU, multi-core CPU, and GPU.
Taking our dominating submissions to the previous edition of the shared task as a starting point, we develop improved teacher-student training via multi-agent dual-learning and noisy backward-forward translation for Transformer-based student models.
Considerable effort has been made to address the data sparsity problem in neural grammatical error correction.
Ranked #7 on Grammatical Error Correction on BEA-2019 (test)
For all translation directions, we created or used back-translations of monolingual data in the target language as additional synthetic training data.
The University of Edinburgh made submissions to all 14 language pairs in the news translation task, with strong performances in most pairs.
This paper describes the Microsoft and University of Edinburgh submission to the Automatic Post-editing shared task at WMT2018.
Transliterating named entities from one language into another can be approached as neural machine translation (NMT) problem, for which we use deep attentional RNN encoder-decoder models.
This paper describes the submissions of the "Marian" team to the WNMT 2018 shared task.
Previously, neural methods in grammatical error correction (GEC) did not reach state-of-the-art results compared to phrase-based statistical machine translation (SMT) baselines.
Ranked #1 on Grammatical Error Correction on _Restricted_
We combine two of the most popular approaches to automated Grammatical Error Correction (GEC): GEC based on Statistical Machine Translation (SMT) and GEC based on Neural Machine Translation (NMT).

We present Marian, an efficient and self-contained Neural Machine Translation framework with an integrated automatic differentiation engine based on dynamic computation graphs.
In this work, we explore multiple neural architectures adapted for the task of automatic post-editing of machine translation output.
Translation quality estimation is a task of growing importance in NLP, due to its potential to reduce post-editing human effort in disruptive ways.
In this work, we study parameter tuning towards the M^2 metric, the standard metric for automatic grammar error correction (GEC) tasks.
This paper describes the submission of the AMU (Adam Mickiewicz University) team to the Automatic Post-Editing (APE) task of WMT 2016.
