Multi-Engine Machine Translation with an Open-Source (SMT) Decoder
5 Proceedings of the Second Workshop on Statistical Machine Translation,
We describe an architecture that allows to combine statistical machine translation(SMT) with rule-based machine translation(RBMT) in a multi-engine setup. We use a variant of standard SMT technology to align translations from one or more RBMT systems with the source text. We incorporate phrases extracted from these alignments into the phrase table of the SMT system and use the open-source decoder Moses to find good combinations of phrases from SMT training data with the phrases derived from RBMT. First experiments based on this hybrid architecture achieve promising results.
