Using syntactic coupling features for discriminating phrase-based translations (WMT-08 Shared Translation Task)
Vassilina Nikoulina, Marc Dymetman
Our participation in the shared translation task atWMT-08 focusses on news translation from English to French. Our main goal is to contrast a baseline version of the phrase-based MATRAX system, with a version that incorporates
syntactic “coupling” features in order to discriminate translations produced by the baseline system. We report results comparing different feature combinations.
