This paper describes a Multi-Engine based Chinese-to- English spoken language translation system. The design and implementation of the system is given in detail. Three different translation engines are employed in the system and a very simple way is proposed to select the best translation from all the outputs generated by them. The evaluation results from IWSLT2004 are reported and analyzed in detail. The results prove that the Multi-Engine based system is practical.
