Cross-lingual projection methods can ben- efit from resource-rich languages to im- prove performances of NLP tasks in resources-scarce languages. However, these methods confronted the difficulty of syntactic differences between languages especially when the pair of languages varies greatly. To make the projection method well-generalize to diverse lan- guages pairs, we enhance the projec- tion method based on word alignments by introducing target-language word rep- resentations as features and proposing a novel noise removing method based on these word representations. Experiments showed that our methods improve the per- formances greatly on projections between English and Chinese.
