Disambiguation of English contractions for machine translation of TV subtitles


Volk, Martin; Sennrich, R (2011). Disambiguation of English contractions for machine translation of TV subtitles. In: NODALIDA 2011, Nordic Conference of Computational Linguistics, Riga, 11 May 2011 - 13 May 2011.

Abstract

This paper presents a disambiguation method for English apostrophe+s contractions. They occur frequently in subtitles and pose special difficulties for Machine Translation. We propose to disambiguate these contractions in a preprocessing step and show that this leads to improved translation quality.
