Haque, Rejwanul orcid logoORCID: 0000-0003-1680-0099, Dandapat, Sandipan, Srivastava, Ankit Kumar, Naskar, Sudip Kumar and Way, Andy orcid logoORCID: 0000-0001-5736-5930 (2009) English-Hindi transliteration using context-informed PB-SMT: the DCU system for NEWS 2009. In: NEWS 2009 - Named Entities Workshop, 7 August 2009, Singapore.

This paper presents English—Hindi transliteration in the NEWS 2009 Machine Transliteration Shared Task adding source context modeling into state-of-the-art log-linear phrase-based statistical machine translation (PB-SMT). Source context features enable us to exploit source similarity in addition to target similarity, as modelled by the language model. We use a memory-based classification framework that enables efficient estimation of these features while avoiding data sparseness problems.We carried out experiments both at character and transliteration unit (TU) level. Position-dependent source context features produce significant improvements in terms of all evaluation metrics.
