Chinese Separable Words in SMT

The translation of Chinese separable words is a challenge in Chinese-English machine translation. In this paper, we propose a simple yet effective method that combines the two Chinese characters in separable words together whenever these two characters do not occur consecutively. Our experimental results show that our method can improve the translation quality of Chinese separable words significantly. We achieved improvements of 2.79 BLEU points and 17% accuracy (manual evaluation) on translating sentences with separable words.
