A New Evaluation Approach for Sign Language Machine Translation

Almohimeed, Abdulaziz, Wald, Mike and Damper, R. (2009) A New Evaluation Approach for Sign Language Machine Translation In Assistive Technology from Adapted Equipment to Inclusive Environments - AAATE 2009. IOS Press., pp. 498-502.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper proposes a new evaluation approach for sign language machine translation (SLMT). It aims to show a better correlation between its automatically generated scores and human judgements of translation accuracy. To show the correlation, an Arabic Sign Language (ArSL) corpus has been used for the evaluation experiments and the results obtained by various methods.
