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


This paper describes the University of Edinburgh’s machine translation (MT) systems for the IWSLT 2015 evaluation campaign. Our submissions are based on preliminary systems which are under development for the purpose of lecture translation in the TraMOOC project, funded by the European Union.
We participated in the English->Chinese and the English->German translation tasks in the MT track, utilizing only data supplied by the organizers or listed as permissible.We built phrase-based translation systems for both tasks. For English->German, we furthermore made use of syntax-based translation and system combination.
