Investigations on hierarchical phrase-based machine translation

  title={Investigations on hierarchical phrase-based machine translation},
  author={David Vilar Torres},
In this thesis we investigate the hierarchical phrase-based approach to machine translation, with special attention to the search problem. This approach is nowadays one of the most widely applied for statistical machine translation, and thus a detailed study helps in advancing the state-of-the-art in the field. Two are the most widely used algorithms for translating using the hierarchical phrase-based approach: cube pruning and cube growing. For each of this algorithms we study their behaviour… CONTINUE READING
