In the framework of the Tc-Star project, we analyze and propose a combination of two Statistical Machine Translation sys- tems: a phrase-based and an N-gram-based one. The exhaustive analysis includes a comparison of the translation models in terms of efficiency (number of translation units used in the search and computational time) and an examination of the errors in each system’s output. Additionally, we combine both systems, showing accuracy improvements.
