Translation

The line of research on translation will endeavour to improve the existing machine translation systems and extend them to new language pairs. Specifically, these are the tasks that will be tackled:

  • The compiling of large parallel corpora for training statistical systems for machine translation.
  • Post-editing tool for machine translation
  • Pre-editing tool for machine translation
  • Improvement of rule-based machine translation systems
  • Improvement of statistics-based machine translation systems
  • Improvement of example-based machine translation systems
  • Obtaining and improvement of hybrid or combined systems
  • Improvement of Interlingua-based machine translation systems
  • Establishing of evaluation criteria for machine translation
  • Improvement of Spanish-Basque machine translation
  • Development of Basque-Spanish machine translation
  • Development of English-Basque machine translation

As proof of what can be achieved in the sphere of translation through the integration of language technologies for voice and multimedia, the aim is to produce an automatic subtitle-based dubbing demonstrator for documentaries.
