Volk, M; Sennrich, R; Hardmeier, C; Tidström, F (2010). Machine translation of TV subtitles for large scale production. In: Second Joint EM+/CNGL Workshop, Denver, 4 November 2010 - 4 November 2010, 53-62.



This paper describes our work on building and employing Statistical Machine Translation systems for TV subtitles in Scandinavia. We have built translation systems for Danish, English, Norwegian and Swedish. They are used in daily subtitle production and translate large volumes. As an example we report on our evaluation results for three TV genres. We discuss our lessons learned in the system development process which shed interesting light on the practical use of Machine Translation technology.
