This challenge comprises two tasks:
* Multimodal machine translation: participants translate an English source sentence into German, French, or Czech with the help of the image described by the source sentence.
* Multisource multimodal machine translation: participants translate an English sentence into Czech with the help of the image and additional source language sentences in German and French.
For both tasks, participants are also invited to submit a short paper describing their submission.
The Third Conference on Machine Translation will be co-located with EMNLP 2018 in Brussels, Belgium on October 31-November 4.
