Abstract: The concept of fuzzy matching in translation memories can take place using linguistically aware or unaware methods, or a combination of both.
We designed a flexible and time-efficient framework which applies and combines linguistically unaware or aware metrics in the source and target language.
We measure the correlation of fuzzy matching metric scores with the evaluation score of the suggested translation to find out how well the usefulness of a suggestion can be predicted, and we measure the difference in recall between fuzzy matching metrics by looking at the improvements in mean TER as the match score decreases. We found that combinations of fuzzy matching metrics outperform single metrics and that the best-scoring combination is a non-linear combination of the different metrics we have tested.
