Labelled dependencies in machine translation evaluation (2007)

Abstract We present a method for evaluating the quality of Machine Translation (MT) output, using labelled dependencies produced by a Lexical-Functional Grammar (LFG) parser. Our dependency based method, in contrast to most popular string-based evaluation metrics, does not unfairly penalize perfectly valid syntactic variations in the translation, and the addition of WordNet provides a way to accommodate lexical variation. In comparison with other metrics on 16,800 sentences of Chinese-English newswire text, our method reaches high correlation with human scores.
