Text Simplification

113 papers with code • 11 benchmarks • 20 datasets

Text Simplification is the task of reducing the complexity of the vocabulary and sentence structure of text while retaining its original meaning, with the goal of improving readability and understanding. Simplification has a variety of important societal applications, for example increasing accessibility for those with cognitive disabilities such as aphasia, dyslexia, and autism, or for non-native speakers and children with reading difficulties.

Felix: Flexible Text Editing Through Tagging and Insertion

google-research/google-research Findings of the Association for Computational Linguistics 2020

We achieve this by decomposing the text-editing task into two sub-tasks: tagging to decide on the subset of input tokens and their order in the output text and insertion to in-fill the missing tokens in the output not present in the input.

Sentence simplification is the task of rewriting texts so they are easier to understand.

Controllable Sentence Simplification

facebookresearch/access LREC 2020

Text simplification aims at making a text easier to read and understand by simplifying grammar and structure while keeping the underlying information identical.

HTSS: A Novel Hybrid Text Summarisation and Simplification Architecture

farooqzaman1/HTSS Information Processing and Management 2020
