We do this by replacing every word in the corpora with its part-of-speech tag plus a suffix that indicates the relative bias of the word, or how much likelier it is to be in the task corpus versus the(More)
Statistical post-editing has been shown in several studies to increase BLEU score for rule-based MT systems. However, previous studies have relied solely on BLEU and have not conducted further study to determine whether those gains indicated an increase in quality or in score alone. In this work we conduct a human evaluation of statistical post-edited(More)

We built standard hierarchical phrase-based models, extended in two ways: (1) we applied novel data selection techniques to select relevant information from the large French-English training corpora, and (2) we(More)
