Target-Dominant Chinese-English Machine Translation Target-Dominant Chinese-English Machine Translation

by Su, Dan 1974-

Abstract (Summary)
Information exchange is increasing rapidly with the advent of globalization. As the language spoken by the most people in today's world, Chinese will play an important role in information exchange in the future. Therefore, we need an efficient and practical means to access the increasingly large volume of Chinese data. This thesis describes a target-dominant Chinese-English machine translation system, which can translate a given Chinese news sentence into English. We conjecture that we can improve the state of the art of MT using a TDMT approach. This system has participated in the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) 2004 machine translation competition. Experimental results on Penn Chinese Treebank corpus show that a machine translation system adopting a target-dominant approach is promising.
