DFKI-LT - Experiments with Term Translation
Experiments with Term Translation
2 Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Computational Linguistics,
In this article we investigate the translation of financial terms from English into German in the isolation of an ontology vocabulary. For this study we automatically built new domain-specific resources from the translation search engine Linguee and from the online encyclopaedia Wikipedia. Due to the fact that we performed the translation approach on a monolingual ontology, we ran several sub-experiments to find the most appropriate model to translate the financial vocabulary. The findings from these experiments lead to the conclusion that a hybrid translation system, a combination of bilingual terminological resources and statistical machine translation, can help to improve translation of domain-specific terms. Finally we undertook a manual cross-lingual evaluation on the monolingual ontology to get a better understanding on this specific short text translation task.
