What is Neural Machine Translation?
Neural machine translation (NMT), can be thought of as translation performed by a living, learning machine-in-training.
Instead of a static approach, NMT uses neural network models to continuously improve its translation quality. For this reason, NMT require rigorous training and evaluation.
Neural networks are designed to mimic how the human mind learns, gaining more knowledge over time. These engines seek to understand the context of what is being translated to properly predict the correct word choice.
Neural based machine translation engines are much more capable of capturing, and even understanding, the intent or meaning of a sentence, and therefore have been quickly replacing older statistical models. The idea here isn’t just swapping one word for another based on a rule or phrase.
