Abstract: This paper describes neural machine translation between orthographically and morphologically divergent languages. Amharic has a rich morphology; it uses the syllabic Ethiopic script. We used a new transliteration technique for Amharic to facilitate vocabulary sharing. To tackle the highly inflectional morphology and to make an open vocabulary translation, we used subwords. Furthermore, the research was conducted on low-data conditions. We used the transformer-based neural machine translation architecture by tuning the hyperparameters for low-data conditions. In the automatic evaluation of the strong baseline, word-based, and subword-based models trained on a public benchmark dataset, the best subword-based models outperform the baseline models by approximately six up to seven BLEU.
