Machine Translation Evaluation for GALE
The Multimodal Information Group in the Information Technology Laboratory's Information Access Division at NIST is undertaking the development of an evaluation for machine translation (MT) using "edit-distance" as the evaluation metric as defined by the GALE (Global Autonomous Language Exploitation) program.
Machine Translation (MT) is a technology that translates language data from a foreign language into a target language. The source language for the GALE program will be either Arabic or Chinese, and the target language will be English. Input data will be in the form of either audio or text, with the output always being text.
