Alina Karakanta


I am currently a PhD candidate at the Human Language Technologies-Machine Translation (HLT-MT) group at FBK. I am working on developing novel methods for translating audiovisual content, namely on Neural Machine Translation and Speech Translation methods for subtitling and dubbing. My research interests also cover corpus-based translation studies, interpreting studies and constrained translation. I have been a co-organiser of the Workshop on Technologies for MT of Low Resource Languages (LoResMT). Previously, I was a research assistant at the Department of Language Science and Technology, Saarland University for the DFG-funded project “Modelling human translation with a noisy channel”. I am also a professional translator and post-editor. I received my MSc in Computational Linguistics from Saarland University and BAs in Translation Studies and Interpreting Studies from the Ionian University.
