Harvesting Polysemous Terms from e-commerce Data to Enhance QA

Silvio Picinini

Polysemous words can be difficult to translate and can affect the quality of Machine Translation (MT) output. Once the MT quality is affected, it has a direct impact on post-editing and on human-assisted machine translation. The presence of these terms increases the risk of errors. We think that these important words can be used to improve and to measure quality of translations. We present three methods for finding these words from e-commerce data, based on Named Entity Recognition, Part-of-Speech and Search Queries.
