Introduction

TRAD Chinese-French Parallel Text -- Broadcast News was developed by ELDA as part of the PEA-TRAD project. It contains French translations of a subset of approximately 30,000 Chinese characters from GALE Phase 1 Chinese Broadcast News Parallel Text - Part 3 (LDC2008T18).

The PEA-TRAD project (Translation as a Support for Document Analysis) was supported by the French Ministry of Defense (DGA). Its purpose was to develop speech-to-speech translation technology for multiple languages (e.g., Arabic, Chinese, Pashto) from a variety of domains. ELDA developed several corpora for this effort.
