ProphetMT: controlled language authoring aid system description (2016)

Abstract This paper presents ProphetMT, a monolingual Controlled Language (CL) authoring tool which allows users to easily compose an in-domain sentence with the help of tree-based SMT-driven auto-suggestions. The interface also visualizes target-language sentences as they are built by the SMT system. When the user is finished composing, the final translation(s) are generated by a tree-based SMT system using the text and structural information provided by the user. With this domain-specific controlled language, ProphetMT will produce highly reliable translations. The contributions of this work are: 1) we develop a user-friendly auto-completion-based editor which guarantees that the vocabulary and grammar chosen by a user are compatible with a tree-based SMT model; 2) by applying a shift-reduce-like parsing feature, this editor allows users to write from left-to-right and generates the parsing results on the fly. Accordingly, with this in-domain composing restriction as well as the gold-standard parsing result, a highly reliable translation can be generated.
