Abstract
This paper describes the Neural Machine Translation systems of Xiamen University for the shared translation tasks of WAT 2017. Our systems are based on the Encoder-Decoder framework with attention. We participated in three subtasks. We experimented subword segmentation, synthetic training data and model ensembling. Experiments show that all these methods can give substantial improvements.
