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.
Shared Task: Machine Translation of News
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.
Shared Task: Multimodal Machine Translation En-De
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.
