Out-of-vocabulary (OOV) words present a significant challenge for Machine Translation. For low-resource languages, limited training data further increases the frequency of OOV words and degrades the quality of the translations. Past approaches have suggested using stems or synonyms for OOV words. Unlike the previous methods, we propose handling not just the OOV words but rare words as well in an Example-based Machine Translation (EBMT) paradigm. Presence of OOV words and rare words in the input… CONTINUE READING
