MLLP members are this week at ACL 2019 in Florence, and will present at the Fourth Conference in Machine Translation (WMT19) their most recent Neural Machine Translation systems for EN<>DE, FR<>DE and ES<>PT. In particular, our Spanish<>Portuguese systems have won WMT19’s Similar Language Translation shared task. Come see us at the conference!
The MLLP’s Prof. Alfons Juan has been an invited speaker at SCIC-Universities 2019 (SCIC 23; Brussels, 4–5 May 2019), the European Commission’s DG Interpretation annual conference.

MLLP researchers participated in collaboration with RWTH Aachen colleagues in the IberSpeech-RTVE 2018 TV Speech-to-Text Challenge. We are proud to announce that our systems won both tracks of this international challenge on automatic transcription of TV shows.
