NUIG-Panlingua-KMI submission to WMT 2020 seeks to push the state-of-the-art in Similar Language Translation Task for Hindi <-> Marathi language pair. As part of these efforts, we conducted a series of experiments to address the challenges for translation between similar languages. Among the 4 MT systems prepared under this task, 1 PBSMT systems were prepared for Hindi <-> Marathi each and 1 NMT systems were developed for Hindi <-> Marathi using Byte Pair En-coding (BPE) into subwords. The results show that different architectures in NMT could be an effective method for developing MT systems for closely related languages. Our Hindi-Marathi NMT system was ranked 8th among the 14 teams that participated and our Marathi-Hindi NMT system was ranked 8th among the 11 teams participated for the task.
