Welcome to the Machine Translation group
at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya


We devise multilingual machine translation algorithms to reduce existing language barriers


We strive for academic excellence both in research and teaching


We are committed to fair and open science


We bring together talent at various academic levels: bachelor’s, master’s and PhD

Our MT group started in 2002 and since then it is highly contributing to making the dream of automatic translation more realistic. In the framework of national and European projects, the MT group is developing its own systems – initially based on statistical machine translation and more recently on neural machine translation – to attain improved perfomance over state-of-the-art constantly. High multilingualism is the priority, and in this direction, our translation systems regularly undergoes assessments by international organizations obtaining similar results to existing systems.

Moreover, joining other UPC expertises, the latest advances in speech recognition, synthesis and image processing make it possible to undertake speech translation or multimodal translation. Our MT group is working on all these novel applications that are evolving quickly enough to adapt systems in production.
