This is a parallel corpus of 15,000 characters in Chinese (equivalent to 10,000 words) and 2 reference translations in French. The source texts are newspaper articles from the Chinese version of Voice of America. Articles are dated from 2011 and 2012. The translation has been conducted by two different translation teams following a strict protocol aimed at producing high quality translations. The content has also been translated into English (see ELRA-W0112). This corpus was produced by ELDA within the PEA TRAD project supported by the French Ministry of Defence (DGA). It was used as a test set for an internal MT evaluation campaign.
