We present a system for cross-lingual parse disambiguation, exploiting the assumption that the meaning of a sentence remains un- changed during translation and the fact that different languages have different ambiguities. We simultaneously reduce ambiguity in multi- ple languages in a fully automatic way. Eval- uation shows that the system reliably discards dispreferred parses from the raw parser output, which results in a pre-selection that can speed up manual treebanking.
