In this paper we report on our recent work in clause alignment for English-Chinese legal texts using available lexical resources including a bilingual legal glossary and a bilingual dictionary, for the purpose of acquiring examples at various linguistic levels for example-based machine translation. We present our formulation of an appropriate measure for(More)
This paper reports on our recent work in clause alignment for English-Chinese legal texts using available bilingual lexical resources, for the purpose of acquiring examples at various linguistic levels for EBMT. It formulates similarity measures for candidate clause pairs in terms of matched lexical items and presents the implementation of a clause(More)
