We compare the effectiveness of two related • machine translation models applied to the same limited-domain task. One is a trans- fer model with monolingual head automata for analysis and generation; the other is a direct transduction model based on bilin- gual head transducers. We conclude that the head transducer model is more effective according to measures of accuracy, compu- tational requirements, model size, and de- velopment effort.
