A research prototype for translation of Standard German to Viennese Dialect is made available via our website (see below).
This prototype builds on phrase tables obtained from various data sources generated within this project. For out-of-vocabulary
items, a backoff strategy is employed that uses phrase-based modelling on the character level, trained on cognate pairs from
the corpus. Optionally, in a preprocessing step the lack of imperfect tense in Viennese dialect can be dealt with by transforming
all imperfect verb forms into perfect tense.
