In this paper we describe our participa- tion in the SemEval 2014, Task 5, con- sisting of the construction of a translation assistance system that translates L1 frag- ments, written in L2 context, to their cor- rect L2 translation. Our approach con- sists of a bilingual parallel corpus, a sys- tem of syntactic features extraction and a statistical memory-based classification al- gorithm. Our system ranked 4th and 6th among the 10 participating systems that used the English-Spanish data set.
