We propose a technique to generate non- projective word orders in an efficient statisti- cal linearization system. Our approach pre- dicts liftings of edges in an unordered syntac- tic tree by means of a classifier, and uses a projective algorithm for tree linearization. We obtain statistically significant improvements on six typologically different languages: En- glish, German, Dutch, Danish, Hungarian, and Czech.
