WASP-Bench: an MT lexicographers’ workstation supporting state-of-the-art lexical disambiguation

Proceedings of Machine Translation Summit VIII

Most MT lexicography is devoted to developing rules of the kind, “in context C, translate source-language word S as target-language word T”. Very many such rules are required, producing them is laborious, and MT companies standardly spend large sums on it. We present the WASP-Bench, a lexicographer's workstation for the rapid and semi-automatic development of such rule-sets. The WASP-Bench makes use of a large source-language corpus and state-of-the-art techniques for Word Sense Disambiguation. We show that the WSD accuracy is on a par with the best results published to date, with the advantage that the WASP-Bench, unlike other high- performance systems, does not require a sense-disambiguated training corpus as input. The WASP-Bench is designed to fit readily with MT companies' working practices, as it may be used for as many or as few source language words as present disambiguation problems for a given target.
