The 10th Workshop on Patent and Scientific Literature Translation (PSLT 2023)
5th September, 2023
Macau SAR, China

Following the success of the previous workshops on Patent and Scientific Literature Translation, we are organizing the 10th Workshop on Patent and Scientific Literature Translation (PSLT 2023) held in conjunction with MT Summit 2023 in Macau SAR, China. Online participation is also welcome. Machine translation of patent information and different types of scientific literature is in high demand, while there still remain open problems to make the machine translation results more sophisticated. The workshop covers a wide range of topics related to the unique features of scientific literature including patents, scientific papers, and technical reports. The workshop, which consists of invited talks, presentation of submitted papers, and free discussion will be an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to get together and exchange their ideas and experiences.
