A Comparison of Statistical Post-editing on Chinese and Japanese
|Volume 7 Issue 1
|Authors: Midori Tatsumi, Yanli Sun
This paper analyses both quantitatively and qualitatively the results of a recent Statistical Post-editing
(SPE) experiment on English to Chinese and English to Japanese translations. Quantitatively, it compares the
number of changes resulting from SPE between the two languages; qualitatively, a linguistic analysis of the
changes is conducted. It also investigates the effect of SPE on the fluency and adequacy of the translation as well
as the potential impact on human post-editing effort. Our study indicates that, in general SPE results in more
improvements than degradations in both languages although the linguistic changes are different between the two
languages. In addition, SPE could improve the fluency and adequacy of MT outputs and shorten human post-editing
time in both languages.
