We present a probabilistic bilingual capi- talization model for capitalizing machine translation outputs using conditional ran- dom fields. Experiments carried out on three language pairs and a variety of ex- periment conditions show that our model significantly outperforms a strong mono- lingual capitalization model baseline, es- pecially when working with small datasets and/or European language pairs.
