Abstract

We propose a method to obtain subsentential alignments from several languages simultaneously. The method handles several languages at once, and avoids the complexity explosion due to the usual pair-by-pair processing. It can be used for different units (characters, morphemes, words, chunks). An evaluation of word alignments with a trilingual machine translation corpus has been conducted. A comparison of the results with those obtained by state of the art alignment software is reported.
