  • We describe the task of translating clinical term descriptions from Spanish to Brazilian Portuguese. We build a statistical machine translation system (SMT) using in-domain parallel corpora and available machine learning tools. The performance of this SMT was compared with general purpose machine translation systems available online. We used different techniques to validate the result of the different systems, using reference domain terminology and the occurrence of translated descriptions in a… CONTINUE READING
