Abstract / Description of output

A machine translation (MT) system may utilize a phrase-based joint probability model. The model may be used to generate source and target language sentences simultaneously. In an embodiment, the model may learn phrase-to-phrase alignments from word-to-word alignments generated by a word-to-word statistical MT system. The system may utilize the joint probability model for both source-to-target and target-to-source translation applications.
