Xhosa-English Machine Translation for the Medical Domain


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.

For some great examples of bad translations, see the slides.
