We do not have sufficient annotated resources for many languages. For example, out of the 47 languages in the Universal Depencies set only two languages have treebanks exceeding 1 mln words, while many languages are not represented at all. However, we can use typological links between the languages to produce better computational models for lesser-resourced languages (recipients) by transferring information from better resourced ones (donors). In this talk I report my experience of building and using cross-lingual embeddings with added constraints such as the Weighted Levenshtein Distance.
