Uzbek Cyrillic-Latin-Cyrillic Machine Transliteration

01/13/2021 ∙ by B. Mansurov, et al. ∙ 0

In this paper, we introduce a data-driven approach to transliterating Uzbek dictionary words from the Cyrillic script into the Latin script, and vice versa. We heuristically align characters of words in the source script with sub-strings of the corresponding words in the target script and train a decision tree classifier that learns these alignments. On the test set, our Cyrillic to Latin model achieves a character level micro-averaged F1 score of 0.9992, and our Latin to Cyrillic model achieves the score of 0.9959. Our contribution is a novel method of producing machine transliterated texts for the low-resource Uzbek language.
