This paper studies and evaluates disambigua- tion strategies for the translation of tense be- tween German and English, using a bilingual corpus of appointment scheduling dialogues. It describes a scheme to detect complex verb pred- icates based on verb form subcategorization and grammatical knowledge. The extracted verb and tense information is presented and the role of different context factors is discussed.
