In this paper, we describe AppTek's new APT machine translation system that we employed in the IWSLT 2010 evaluation campaign. This year, we participated in the Arabic-to- English and Turkish-to-English BTEC tasks. We discuss the architecture of the system, the preprocessing steps and the experiments carried out during the campaign. We show that competitive translation quality can be obtained with a system that can be turned into a real-life product without much effort.
