Abstract : Statistical phrase-based approach was dominating researches in the field of machine translation for these last twenty years. Recently , a new paradigm based on neural networks has been proposed: Neural Machine Translation (NMT). Even there is still challenges to deal with, NMT shows up promising results better than the Statistical Machine Translation (SMT) on some language pairs. The baseline architecture used in NMT systems is based on a large and a single neural network to translate a whole source sentence to a target one. Several powerful and advanced techniques have been proposed to improve this baseline system and achieve a performance comparable to the state-of-the-art approach. This article aims to describe some of these techniques and to compare them with the conventional SMT approach on the task of Arabic-English machine translation. The result obtained by the NMT system is close to the one obtained by the SMT system on our data set.
