This paper describes a word and phrase alignment approach based on a depend- ency analysis of French/English parallel corpora, referred to as alignment by “syn- tax-based propagation.” Both corpora are analysed with a deep and robust depend- ency parser. Starting with an anchor pair consisting of two words that are transla- tions of one another within aligned sen- tences, the alignment link is propagated to syntactically connected words.
