This talk presents a summary of research done as part of my master’s thesis, where I have addressed the problem of estimating the quality of machine translations automatically without having access to human references. Estimations are obtained by building a supervised regression model that predicts quality scores using features from the source and target texts as well as additional resources. Although shallow indicators are generally used to characterise the relationship between the source text and its translation, they convey no notion of meaning, grammar or linguistic correctness so final estimations may be very biased towards superficial aspects. The work presented here attempts to bridge that gap by introducing more linguistic features and analysing how they compare with shallow indicators over a set of publicly available datasets.
