Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper presents methods to combine large language models trained from diverse text sources and applies them to a state-of-art French–English and Arabic–English machine translation system. We show gains of over 2 BLEU points over a strong baseline by using continuous space language models in re-ranking.
