Abstract [en]

We have investigated the potential for improvement in target language morphology when translating into Swedish from English and German, by measuring the errors made by a state of the art phrase-based statistical machine translation system. Our results show that there is indeed a performance gap to be filled by better modelling of inflectional morphology and compounding; and that the gap is not filled by simply feeding the translation system with more training data.
