Error analysis in machine translation is a nec- essary step in order to investigate the strengths and weaknesses of the MT systems under de- velopment and allow fair comparisons among them. This work presents an application that shows how a set of heterogeneous automatic metrics can be used to evaluate a test bed of automatic translations. To do so, we have set up an online graphical interface for the ASIYA toolkit, a rich repository of evaluation measures working at different linguistic lev- els. The current implementation of the inter- face shows constituency and dependency trees as well as shallow syntactic and semantic an- notations, and word alignments. The intelli- gent visualization of the linguistic structures used by the metrics, as well as a set of navi- gational functionalities,...
