[Reading] Translating 100 languages without using English data

**We meet through Zoom. Follow this link to register for this meetup: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZckdOmvqT4qHdaOdEuGkVdlqvrhCscWowix ** Video is an essential way for us to connect remotely. Your video presence is required for attending the meeting. Paper abstract: Existing machine translation models are English-Centric by training on data translated from or to English. In this work, we create a true Many-to-Many multilingual translation model that can translate directly between any pair of 100 languages. We build and open source a training dataset that covers thousands of language directions with supervised data. Then, we explore how to effectively increase model capacity through a combination of dense scaling and language-specific sparse parameters to create high quality models. Our focus on non-English-Centric models brings gains of more than 10 BLEU when directly translating between non-English directions while performing competitively to the best single systems of WMT. We open-source our scripts so that others may reproduce the data, evaluation, and the final M2M-100 model.
