Assisting Interpreters with Technical Terms

Abstract: To assist simultaneous interpreters with their work, one needs to find a balance between providing useful information and minimizing distraction. This talk will discuss a simple method for detecting and translating technical terms and a crowdsourced experiment to determine whether the method strikes the right balance for interpreter assistance--without actually using interpreters.

Title: Semantic and Stylistic Variations in Machine Translation

Abstract: While parallel texts represent invaluable resources for machine translation, they inevitably introduce biases in the cross-lingual mappings learned by machine translation models.  In addition to the domain bias and translationese bias studied in past work, we argue that another form of bias arises from subtle choices in content and style made by translators to appropriately convey the meaning of the source to their target audience.

A question-answering system designed by researchers from UMD and the University of Colorado holds its own against a top human team.

Language Science Day 2014

LSD marked the 1-year anniversary of the Maryland Language Science Center, showcasing many ideas and initiatives launched over the past year.

National security challenges demand leaders who can speak in uncommon languages.

Each Fall, Language Science Day (LSD) brings together up to 200 students and faculty from across the University and affiliated centers, providing opportunities for participants to exchange ideas, showcase new or ongoing projects, find out about research and training opportunities, spark potential collaborations, and get to know their fellow language scientists.
