Monolingual and Cross-lingual Zero-shot Style Transfer

08/01/2018 ∙ by Elizaveta Korotkova, et al. ∙ 0

We introduce the task of zero-shot style transfer between different languages. Our training data includes multilingual parallel corpora, but does not contain any parallel sentences between styles, similarly to the recent previous work. We propose a unified multilingual multi-style machine translation system design, that allows to perform zero-shot style conversions during inference; moreover, it does so both monolingually and cross-lingually. Our model allows to increase the presence of dissimilar styles in corpus by up to 3 times, easily learns to operate with various contractions, and provides reasonable lexicon swaps as we see from manual evaluation.
