Our research group successfully participated in this year’s WMT machine translation tasks, taking the shared first place in both the English-Finnish and Finnish-English news translation tasks.
We also participated in the Multimodal Machine Translation task as part of the MeMaD project, taking the first place in English-German and in English-French translation.
In both the news and multimodal translation tasks, the best systems from the Language Technology group utilised state-of-the-art neural machine translation models.
System papers describing the models will be presented at EMNLP 2018 Third Conference on Machine Translation (WMT18) later this year.
Congratulations to our team!
