CWMT 2017 MT Evaluation

Chinese Vesion

I.               General Introduction

The 13th China Workshop on Machine Translation (CWMT 2017) will be held at Dalian, China on September 27-29, 2017. CWMT 2017 will continue the ongoing series of machine translation (MT) evaluation campaigns. Compared with the previous evaluation (CWMT 2015), there are several changes in the evaluation plan:

1. The Chinese-English and English-Chinese news translation tasks are co-organized by CWMT and WMT2017; participants for the zh-en and en-zh tasks of WMT 2017 are welcome to submit their results to CWMT, and to participate the CWMT event, as well.

2. A new Japanese-Chinese patent domain translation task is added, which is co-organized by CWMT and Beijing Lingosail Technology Co. Ltd.; we also welcome other contributors from industry to participate in the organization of the evaluation in the future.

3.The training period starts immediately after the release of this guideline. Participants could get the corresponding data and tools and start the training process right after their registration. We would like to encourage potential participants to finish the registration as soon as possible.

4.The "Double Blind Evaluation" task is not held this year; the organizer will not provide the Baseline System, corresponding key steps or intermediate result files for the evaluation tasks.

We sincerely hope that this campaign will enhance the cooperation and connections of machine translation research and technology among domestic and overseas research sites, and promote the cooperation between academia and industry.
