Global Under-Resourced MEedia Translation

Project description

Improving neural machine translation for low-resource language

In a world where accurate and timely information has become imperative, journalists are in constant need of the appropriate tools of fast and accurate translation for languages with very few resources. Although neural machine translation technology advances rapidly, it has not managed yet to deliver usable translations for most language pairs in the world due to the lack of data and parallel corpora. The EU-funded GoURMET aims at improving the robustness and applicability of neural machine translation for low-resource language pairs and domains. The project will focus on global content creation by providing machine translations for correction by humans and on international news media monitoring for low-resource language pairs.
