In this project, We studied Japanese-Chinese-English Translation Corpus and Its Application.
(l)We have proposed an algorithm for automatically aligning Chinese and Japanese parallel Corpora. The algorithm initially attempts to align the Chinese and Japanese sentences using measurements of the differences between sentence lengths in the two documents.
(2)We have proposed a new concept called "Sensitive Word", and described the segmentation problem and the impact of the sensitive word on natural language processing. We have shown the result of our examination.
(3)A crucial problem in rule-based machine translation is the acquisition of translation knowledge. Many studies have been conducted for automatic acquisition in the past, but they require a great deal of annotated examples. In this project, we have developed a semi-automatic mechanism to support knowledge acquisition from translation examples in Japanese-Chinese environment.
(4) We have proposed a relaxed segmentation process for Chinese which extracts not noly the longest words as one usually does, but also all the short words implied. Special rules are also designed in order to recongnize and standardize sepcial words such as proper names and nominal pre-determiners. It is shown that IR based on this segmentation leads to a higher effectiveness than bigrams.
(5) We have taken a new hybrid multi-engine approach to machine translation, which can take the advantages of the previously proposed methods and get rid of their disadvantages.
(6) We will publisize our "Translation corpora" and "Chinese dictionary" on the Web after we improve the multi-lingual envionment.
