dc.description.abstractWe describe IRIS, a statistical machine translation (SMT) system for translating from English into Irish and vice versa. Since Irish is considered an under-resourced language with a limited amount of machine-readable text, building a machine translation system that produces reasonable translations is rather challenging. As translation is a difficult task, current research in SMT focuses on obtaining statistics either from a large amount of parallel, monolingual or other multilingual resources. Nevertheless, we collected available English-Irish data and developed an SMT system aimed at supporting human translators and enabling cross-lingual language technology tasks.en_IE
dc.description.sponsorshipWe would like to thank Seathrun´ O Tuairisg, Rose- ´ mary Coll and Niall Mac Uidhilin for the manual evaluation of the Irish translations. We would also like to thank the Translation and Interpreting Unit in Acadamh na hOllscola´ıochta Gaeilge at the National University of Ireland, Galway for providing us with the additional English-Irish parallel corpus.
