EHU at TweetMT: Adapting MT Engines for Formal Tweets


This paper describes the participation of the IXA group from the UPV/EHU (University of the Basque Country) in the TweetMT shared task at the SEPLN-2015 conference. We have adapted existing MT engines for the es-eu and eu-es pairs, obtaining good results (better than other experiments reported in previous work). Three main aspects are described: resource compilation, engine adaptation and results.
