Paper: Deciphering Foreign Language

ACL ID P11-1002
Title Deciphering Foreign Language
Venue Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference
Year 2011

In this work, we tackle the task of ma- chine translation (MT) without parallel train- ing data. We frame the MT problem as a de- cipherment task, treating the foreign text as a cipher for English and present novel meth- ods for training translation models from non- parallel text.
