The InternationalWorkshop of Spoken Language Translation (IWSLT) 2018 Evaluation Campaign featured two tasks: the low-resourced machine translation task and the speech translation task. In the first task, manual transcribed speech needs to be translated from Basque to English. Since this translation direction is a under-resourced language pair, participants were encouraged to used additional parallel data from related languages. In the second task, the participants need to translate English audio into German text by building a full speech-translation system. In the baseline condition, participants were free to used any architecture, while they are restricted to use a single model for the end-to-end task.

Abstract

The InternationalWorkshop of Spoken Language Translation (IWSLT) 2018 Evaluation Campaign featured two tasks: the low-resourced machine translation task and the speech translation task. In the first task, manual transcribed speech needs to be translated from Basque to English. Since this translation direction is a under-resourced language pair, participants were encouraged to used additional parallel data from related languages. In the second task, the participants need to translate English audio into German text by building a full speech-translation system. In the baseline condition, participants were free to used any architecture, while they are restricted to use a single model for the end-to-end task. This year, eight research groups took part in the Basque English translation task, and nine in the speech translation task
