We present two approaches for syntactic and se- mantic transfer based on LFG f-structures and compare the results with existing co-description and restriction operator based approaches, fo- cusing on aspects of ambiguity preserving trans- fer, complex cases of syntactic structural mis- matches as well as on modularity and reusabil- ity. The two transfer approaches are interfaced with an existing, implemented transfer con> ponent (Verbmobil), by translating f-structures into a term language, and by interfacing f- structure representations with an existing se- mantic based transfer at)proach, respectively.
