Workshop presentation, Workshop on English-isiXhosa machine translation for healthcare, University of Cape Town, Cape Town, South Africa

As part of a project to develop medical domain machine translation systems between isiXhosa and English (see project page for more details), the University of Cape Town hosted a workshop, where I presented the challenges of building such a system in low-resource languages, some low-resource techniques to build better MT systems, the data used for building the medical domain isiXhosa-English MT models, and some preliminary results.
