We present the results of an experiment on extending the automatic method of Machine Translation evaluation BLUE with statistical weights for lexical items, such as tf.idf scores. We show that this extension gives additional information about evaluated texts; in particular it allows us to measure translation Adequacy, which, for statistical MT systems, is(More)
The main goal of the work presented in this paper is to find an inexpensive and automatable way of predicting rankings of MT systems compatible with human evaluations of these systems expressed in the form of Fluency, Adequacy or Informativeness scores. Our approach is to establish whether there is a correlation between rankings derived from such scores and(More)
This paper describes a multilingual text generation system in the domain of CAD/CAM software instructions for Bulgarian, Czech and Russian. Starting from a language-independent semantic representation , the system drafts natural, continuous text as typically found in software manuals. The core modules for strategic and tactical generation are implemented(More)
In an age when demand for innovative and motivating language teaching methodologies is at a very high level, TREAT-the Trilingual REAding Tutor-combines the most advanced natural language processing (NLP) techniques with the latest second and third language acquisition (SLA/TLA), as well as computer-assisted language learning (CALL) research in an intuitive(More)
Ce chapitre décrit la Campagne d'Évaluation des Systèmes de Traduction Automatique, CESTA, organisée dans le cadre de l'action Technolangue mise en place par plusieurs départements ministériels français. L'objectif de CESTA était d'organiser deux campagnes de test, la première mesurant la qualité des traductions produites automatiquement par des systèmes –(More)
This tutorial offers an introduction to the field of Machine Translation evaluation, and in particular to FEMTI, the Framework for the Evaluation of Machine Translation in ISLE, which groups together a wide range of evaluation metrics, following a contextual evaluation approach. In a practical application of the framework, participants will be shown how to(More)
