Word alignment is a challenging task aim- ing at the identification of translational re- lations between words and multi-word units in parallel corpora. Many alignment strate- gies are based on links between single words. Different strategies can be used to find the optimal word alignment using such one-to- one word links including relations between multi-word units. In this paper seven algo- rithms are compared using a word alignment approach based on association clues and an English-Swedish bitext together with a handcrafted reference alignment used for evaluation.
