We conduct a pilot study for task-oriented evaluation of Multiword Expression (MWE) in Statistical Machine Translation (SMT). We propose two different integration strategies for MWE in SMT, which take advantage of differ- ent degrees of MWE semantic compositional- ity and yield complementary improvements in SMT quality on a large-scale translation task.1
