An Italian to Catalan RBMT system reusing data from existing language pairs

Toral, Antonio orcid logoORCID: 0000-0003-2357-2960, Ginestí-Rosell, Mireia and Tyers, Francis (2011) An Italian to Catalan RBMT system reusing data from existing language pairs. In: the Second International Workshop on Free/Open-Source Rule-Based Machine Translation., 20 Jan. 2011, Barcelona (Spain).

This paper presents an Italian! Catalan RBMT system automatically built by combining the linguistic data of the existing pairs Spanish–Catalan and Spanish–Italian. A lightweight manual postprocessing is carried out in order to fix inconsistencies in the automatically derived dictionaries and to add very frequent words that are missing according to a corpus analysis. The system is evaluated on the KDE4 corpus and outperforms Google Translate by approximately ten absolute points in terms of both TER and GTM.
