Integration of Neural Machine Translation Systems for Formatting-Rich Document Translation

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 10859)


In this paper, we present our work on integrating neural machine translation systems in the document translation workflow of the cloud-based machine translation platform Tilde MT. We describe the functionality of the translation workflow and provide examples for formatting-rich document translation.
