Noisy Parallel Corpus Filtering through Projected Word Embeddings

Murathan Kurfalı, Robert Östling


Abstract
We present a very simple method for parallel text cleaning of low-resource languages, based on projection of word embeddings trained on large monolingual corpora in high-resource languages. In spite of its simplicity, we approach the strong baseline system in the downstream machine translation evaluation.
