Boosting Neural Machine Translation from Finnish to Northern Sámi with Rule-Based Backtranslation

no code implementations NoDaLiDa 2021 Mikko Aulamo, Sami Virpioja, Yves Scherrer, Jörg Tiedemann

Evaluating the results on an in-domain test set and a small out-of-domain set, we find that the RBMT backtranslation outperforms NMT backtranslation clearly for the out-of-domain test set, but also slightly for the in-domain data, for which the NMT backtranslation model provided clearly better BLEU scores than the RBMT.
