We focus on the Cross-lingual Text-to-SQL semantic parsing, where the parsers are expected to generate SQL for non-English utterances based on English database schema. Intuitively, English translation as a side information is an effective way for bridging the language gap, while the noise introduced by translation system may effect the parser effectiveness.
