    "description": "<p>Machine translation of ancient languages faces a low-resource problem, caused by the limited amount of available textual source data&nbsp;and their translations. We present a multi-task modeling approach to translating Middle Egyptian that is inspired by recent successful&nbsp;approaches to multi-task learning in end-to-end speech translation. We leverage the phonographic aspect of the hieroglyphic writing&nbsp;system, and show that similar to multi-task learning of speech recognition and translation, joint learning and sharing of structural&nbsp;information between hieroglyph transcriptions, translations, and POS tagging can improve direct translation of hieroglyphs by several&nbsp;BLEU points, using a minimal amount of manual transcriptions.</p>",
