This paper describes an alternative trans- lation model based on a text chunk un- der the framework of statistical machine translation. The translation model sug- gested here first performs chunking. Then, each word in a chunk is translated. Fi- nally, translated chunks are reordered. Under this scenario of translation model- ing, we have experimented on a broad- coverage Japanese-English traveling cor- pus and achieved improved performance.
