Deepfix is a statistical post-editing sys- tem for improving the quality of statis- tical machine translation outputs. It at- tempts to correct errors in verb-noun va- lency using deep syntactic analysis and a simple probabilistic model of valency. On the English-to-Czech translation pair, we show that statistical post-editing of statis- tical machine translation leads to an im- provement of the translation quality when helped by deep linguistic knowledge.
