The UZH system combination system for WMT 2011


Sennrich, R (2011). The UZH system combination system for WMT 2011. In: Sixth Workshop on Statistical Machine Translation, Edinburgh, UK, 30 July 2011 - 31 July 2011, 166-170.

Abstract

This paper describes the UZH system that was used for the WMT 2011 system combination shared task submission.
We participated in the system combination task for the translation directions DE-EN and EN-DE.
The system uses Moses as a backbone, with the outputs of the 2-3 best individual systems being integrated through additional phrase tables.
The system compares well to other system combination submissions, with no other submission being significantly better.
A BLEU-based comparison to the individual systems, however, indicates that it achieves no significant gains over the best individual system.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
