Machine Translation and Automated Analysis of Cuneiform Languages (Web Resources)
Title: Machine Translation and Automated Analysis of Cuneiform Languages
Author: Robert Englund
Author: Heather Baker
Author: Christian Chiarcos
Abstract: The MTAAC project develops and applies new computerized methods to translate and analyze the contents of some 67,000 highly standardized administrative documents from southern Mesopotamia (ancient Iraq) from the 21st century BC. Our methodology, which combines machine learning with statistical and neural machine translation technologies, can then be applied to other ancient languages. This methodology, the translations, and the historical, social and economic data extracted from them, will be offered to the public in open access.
