FINMT 2016

Workshop on Machine Translation for Morphologically-Rich Languages

… and Finnish in particular

The goal of this workshop is to bring together people with interest in machine translation for morphologically-rich languages and Finnish in particular. Morphological complexity and word order freedom are difficult challenges in current MT models and we would like to accelerate the development of systems that can handle languages like Finnish in a more appropriate way especially as the target language. We hope that this event will create new ideas and fosters collaborations leading to substantial improvements in MT for such languages. The following topics will be discussed during the workshop:

  • Neural MT for morphologically-rich languages
  • Tools and resources for Finnish (and other morphologically-rich languages)
  • Evaluation of highly-inflecting languages
