Addicter: What is wrong with my translations?

Abstract

We introduce Addicter, a tool for Automatic Detection and DIsplay of Common Translation ERrors. The tool allows to automatically identify and label translation errors and browse the test and training corpus and word alignments; usage of additional linguistic tools is also supported.
The error classification is inspired by that of Vilar et al. (2006), although some of their higherlevel categories are beyond the reach of the current version of our system. In addition to the tool itself we present a comparison of the proposed method to manually classified translation
errors and a thorough evaluation of the generated alignments.

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.
