Data-driven approaches to machine translation (MT) achieve state-of-the-art results. Many syntax-aware approaches, such as ExampleBased MT and Data-Oriented Translation, make use of tree pairs aligned at sub-sentential level. Obtaining sub-sentential alignments manually is time-consuming and error-prone, and requires expert knowledge of both source and target languages. We propose a novel, language pair-independent algorithm which automatically induces alignments between phrase-structure trees… CONTINUE READING
