This paper proposes an example-based machine translation system which handles structural translation examples. The structural translation examples have the potential advantage of high-usability. However, technologies which build such translation examples are still being developed. In such a situation, the comparison of the proposed system and the other approach systems is meaningful. This paper presents the system algorithm and its performance on the IWSLT04 Japanese-English unrestricted task.
