Translating to and from low-resource polysynthetic languages present numerous challenges for NMT. We present the results of our systems for the English--Inuktitut language pair for the WMT 2020 translation tasks. We investigated the importance of correct morphological segmentation, whether or not adding data from a related language (Greenlandic) helps, and whether using contextual word embeddings improves translation. While each method showed some promise, the results are mixed.
