Abstract

In this paper we explore a technique for adding longer phrase translation pairs to a Statistical Machine Translation (SMT) system. New phrases are generated by merging existing phrase-level alignments that have overlapping words on both the source and target sides. The effect on translation qualify is reported for an Arabic-English system in die news domain.
