Machine Translation (MT) Quality Estimation (QE) aims to automatically measure the quality of MT system output without reference translations. In spite of the progress achieved in re- cent years, current MT QE systems are not capable of dealing with data coming from different train/test distributions or domains, and scenarios in which training data is scarce. We investigate different multitask learning methods that can cope with such limitations and show that they over- come current state-of-the-art methods in real-world conditions where training and test data come from different domains.
