We present a new translation model in- tegrating the shallow local multi bottom- up tree transducer. We perform a large- scale empirical evaluation of our obtained system, which demonstrates that we sig- nificantly beat a realistic tree-to-tree base- line on the WMT 2009 English?German translation task. As an additional contribu- tion we make the developed software and complete tool-chain publicly available for further experimentation.
