Proceedings of the 7th International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation: Papers
The QMUL system to the IWSLT 2008 evaluation campaign is a phrase-based statistical MT system implemented in C++. The decoder employs a multi-stack architecture, and uses a beam to manage the search space. We participated in both BTEC Arabic → English and Chinese → English tracks, as well as the PIVOT task. In our first submission to IWSLT, we are particularly interested in seeing how our SMT system performs with speech input, having so far only worked with and translated newswire data sets.
