Leveraging backtranslation to improve machine translation for Gaelic (2019)

Abstract Irish and Scottish Gaelic are similar but distinct languages from the Celtic language family. Both languages are underresourced in terms of machine translation (MT), with Irish being the better resourced. In this paper, we show how backtranslation can be used to harness the resources of these similar low-resourced languages and build a Scottish-Gaelic to English MT system with little or no highquality bilingual data.
