Offer Description

The PhD project will focus on variety-aware machine translation in a broad sense. While there have been impressive improvements in the field of machine translation in recent years, most systems define their source and target lan-guages at a relatively coarse level (e.g. “English”, “Norwegian”) and do not take into account different types of variation that exist within these language denominations: national varieties (e.g. American vs. British English), writing forms (e.g. Bokmål vs. Nynorsk), dialects, historical varieties, learner language, simple/plain language, as well as different genres and styles.

Applicants have considerable freedom to define their research project within the area of variety-aware machine translation. Depending on the chosen variation type, different setups can be explored (variation on the source side, variation on the target side, or translation between two varieties of the same language). The research project should not only produce variety-aware machine translation models, but also contribute to the evaluation of such models. The application should contain a research proposal that specifies the research direction that the applicant wishes to take.
