This paper presents a new model for word align- ments between parallel sentences, which allows one ~o accurately estimate different parameters, in a computationally efficient way. An applica- tion of this model to bilingual terminology ex- traction, where terms are identified in one lan- guage and guessed, through the alignment pro- cess, in the other one, is also described. An ex- periment conducted on a small English-French parallel corpus gave results with high precision, demonstrating the validity of the model.
