The transfer phase in machine translation (MT) sys- tems has been considered to be more complicated titan analysis and generation~ since it is inherently a conglomeration of individual lexical rules. Currently some attempts are being made to use case-based rea- soning in machine translation, that is, to make deci- sions on the basis of translation examples at appro- priate pohtts in MT. This paper proposes a new type of transfer system, called a Similarity-driven Trans- fer' System (SimTi'ao), for use in such case-based MT (CBMT).
