This paper describes an attempt to recy- cle parts of the Czech-to-Russian ma- chine translation system (MT) in the new Czech-to-English MT system. The paper describes the overall architecture of the new system and the details of the modules which have been added. A special attention is paid to the prob- lem of named entity recognition and to the method of automatic acquisition of lexico-syntactic information for the bilingual dictionary of the system. The paper concentrates on the problems en- countered in the process of reusing ex- isting modules and their solution.
