What is it about?
Our paper is a survey of multilingual neural machine translation. We focus on summarizing, categorizing and comparing papers that use multilingualism to improve neural machine translation. We have covered over 100 prominent papers from 2016-2020. Our paper will be helpful to beginners as well as experienced machine translation practitioners.

Why is it important?
Multilingual neural machine translation, ever since its initial success in 2016, has proliferated and there are dozens of papers addressing multilingualism each month. Given the large number of papers published over 2016-2020 we thought that it was important to summarize all works in that time span and create a go-to paper for people to read when they want to get a broad perspective of the field as well as the trends. We have also listed some future directions that multilingual neural machine translation research should/may take and hope that it helps generate new ideas.
