Hierarchical organization is a well known prop- erty of language, and yet the notion of hierarchi- cal structure has been largely absent from the best performing machine translation systems in recent community-wide evaluations. In this paper, we dis- cuss a new hierarchical phrase-based statistical ma- chine translation system (Chiang, 2005), present- ing recent extensions to the original proposal, new evaluation results in a community-wide evaluation, and a novel technique for fine-grained comparative analysis of MT systems.
