University of Helsinki Language Technology group successful at WMT18 machine translation tasks

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.
