Abstract: The lack of a spelling convention in historical documents makes their orthography to change depending on the author and the time period in which each document was written. This represents a problem for the preservation of the cultural heritage, which strives to create a digital text version of a historical document. With the aim of solving this problem, we propose three approaches—based on statistical, neural and character-based machine translation— to adapt the document’s spelling to modern standards. We tested these approaches in different scenarios, obtaining very encouraging results.
Sponsor: The research leading to these results has received funding from the Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad (MINECO) under project CoMUN-HaT (grant agreement TIN2015-70924-C2-1-R), and Generalitat Valenciana (grant agreement PROMETEO/2018/004).
