Most state-of-the-art evaluation measures for machine translation assign high costs to movements of word blocks. In many cases though such movements still result in correct or almost correct sentences. In this paper, we will present a new eval- uation measure which explicitly models block reordering as an edit operation. Our measure can be exactly calculated in quadratic time.
