In general, when training data has closer domain to the test data, higher quality of sentences alignment and bigger scale of sentences pairs, more accurate translation rules will be learned and translation system will be more robust. In practice, higher quality and bigger scale of training data often results in its complex resources and diverse themes, which are usually different from the test data and lead to domain adaptive problem. The goal of domain adaptation in SMT is filtering and devising training data, or designing and adjusting translation model, so that SMT system can generate translation results with more domain properties.
