The IWSLT 2013 Evaluation Campaign includes the MT trackon TED Talks. In this edition, the official language pairs are three:

   from English to French

   from German to English

   from English to German

while twelve optional pairs in both directions are proposed:

  English to/from Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, Italian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Romanian, Russian, Slovenian, Spanish, Turkish

Submitted runs on optional pairs will be evaluated as well, in the hope to stimulate the MT community to evaluate systems on common benchmarks and to share achievements on challenging translation tasks.
