We investigate methods of generating addi- tional bilingual phrase pairs for a phrase- based decoder by translating short sequences of source text. Because our translation task is more constrained, we can use a model that employs more linguistically rich features than a traditional decoder. We have implemented an example of this approach. Experimental re- sults suggest that the phrase pairs produced by our method are useful to the decoder, and lead to improved sentence translations.
