To Cache or Not To Cache? Experiments with Adaptive Models in Statistical Machine Translation

Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapport/konferenshandlingKonferensbidragVetenskapligPeer review


We report results of our submissions to the WMT 2010 shared translation task in which we applied a system that includes adaptive language and translation models. Adaptation is implemented using exponentially decaying caches storing previous translations as the history for new predictions. Evidence from the cache is then mixed with the global background model. The main problem in this setup is error propagation and our submissions essentially failed to improve over the competitive baseline. There are slight improvements in lexical choice but the global performance decreases in terms of BLEU scores.
