We describe our systems for the SemEval 2014 Task 5: L2 writing assistant where a system has to find appropriate translations of L1 segments in a given L2 context. We participated in three out of four possible language pairs (English-Spanish, French- English and Dutch-English) and achieved the best performance for all our submit- ted systems according to word-based ac- curacy. Our models are based on phrase- based machine translation systems and combine topical context information and language model scoring.
