*** WMT 2017 - Second Shared Task on Multimodal Machine Translation ***

We invite researchers from Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing to participate in this challenge which is part the of Second Conference on Machine Translation - WMT17 shared tasks. This challenge comprises two tasks: * Multimodal machine translation: participants are asked to translate an English source sentence into German or French with the help of the image described by the source sentence. * Multilingual image description: participants are asked to generate a description of an image in German with the help of English descriptions.

The test sets have been released. They include "standard" test sets, as well as an 'ambiguous' test set for the MT track. Participants can join on one or both tasks.

WMT17 will be co-located with EMNLP 2017 in Copenhagen, September 7-11.
