Abstract:
Some source texts are more difficult to
translate than others. One way to handle
such texts is to modify them prior
to translation. Yet, a prominent factor
that is often overlooked is the source
translatability with respect to the specific
translation system and the specific
model that are being used. We present
an approach, and an interactive tool implementing
it, where source sentences
are rewritten in order to maximize confidence
estimates with respect to the translation
model. The automatically-generated
rewritings are then proposed for the user’s
approval. Such an approach can reduce
post-editing effort, replacing it by costeffective
pre-editing that can be done by monolinguals.
