Ralf Engel

This paper presents an experimental example based machine translation system for spoken German-English dialogs. The system consists of a syntactic analysis, a module for automatic alignment of sentence pairs, a translation module and a generation module. The translation module splits the input sentence into parts and finds the best translations for these parts using the sample corpus and a distance function considering context.
