Statistical machine translation from single word models to alignment templates by Franz Josef Och( )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this work, new approaches for machine translation using statistical methods are described. In addition to the standard source-channel approach to statistical machine translation, a more general approach based on the maximum entropy principle is presented. Various methods for computing single-word alignments using statistical or heuristic models are described. Various smoothing techniques, methods to integrate a conventional dictionary and training methods are analyzed. A detailed evaluation of these models is performed by comparing the automatically produced word alignment with a manually produced reference alignment. Based on these fundamental single-word based alignment models, a new phrase-based translation model - the alignment template model - is suggested. For this model, a training and an efficient search algorithm is developed. For two specific applications (interactive translation and multi-source translation) specific search algorithms are developed
