Parser accuracy in quality estimation of machine translation: a tree kernel approach (2013)

Abstract We report on experiments designed to investigate the role of syntactic features in the task of quality estimation for machine translation, focusing on the effect of parser accuracy. Tree kernels are used to predict the segment-level BLEU score of English- French translations. In order to examine the effect of the accuracy of the parse tree on the accuracy of the quality estimation system, we experiment with various pars- ing systems which differ substantially with respect to their Parseval f-scores. We find that it makes very little difference which system we choose to use in the quality estimation task – this effect is particularly apparent for source-side English parse trees.
