In this paper, we report our preliminary ef- forts in building an English-Turkish paral- lel treebank corpus for statistical machine translation. In the corpus, we manually generated parallel trees for about 5,000 sentences from Penn Treebank. English sentences in our set have a maximum of 15 tokens, including punctuation. We con- strained the translated trees to the reorder- ing of the children and the replacement of the leaf nodes with appropriate glosses. We also report the tools that we built and used in our tree translation task.
