We describe the Indiana University sys- tem for SemEval Task 5, the L2 writ- ing assistant task, as well as some exten- sions to the system that were completed after the main evaluation. Our team sub- mitted translations for all four language pairs in the evaluation, yielding the top scores for English-German. The system is based on combining several information sources to arrive at a final L2 translation for a given L1 text fragment, incorporating phrase tables extracted from bitexts, an L2 language model, a multilingual dictionary, and dependency-based collocational mod- els derived from large samples of target- language text.
