We propose a tuning method for statistical ma- chine translation, based on the pairwise rank- ing approach. Hopkins and May (2011) pre- sented a method that uses a binary classifier. In this work, we use linear regression and show that our approach is as effective as us- ing a binary classifier and converges faster.
