We propose a method to obtain subsenten- tial alignments from several languages si- multaneously. The method handles sev- erallanguagesatonce, andavoidsthecom- plexity explosion due to the usual pair-by- pair processing. It can be used for differ- ent units (characters, morphemes, words, chunks). An evaluation of word align- ments 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.
