This is a parallel corpus of 10,000 words in Arabic and 2 reference translations in English. The source texts are articles collected in 2012 from the Arabic version of Le Monde Diplomatique. The translation has been conducted by two different translation teams following a strict protocol aimed at producing high quality translations. The content is also translated into French (see ELRA-W0098). This corpus was produced by ELDA within the PEA TRAD project supported by the French Ministry of Defence (DGA). It was used as a test set for an internal MT evaluation campaign.
