We introduce SPMT, a new class of sta- tistical Translation Models that use Syn- tactified target language Phrases. The SPMT models outperform a state of the art phrase-based baseline model by 2.64 Bleu points on the NIST 2003 Chinese-English test corpus and 0.28 points on a human- based quality metric that ranks translations on a scale from 1 to 5.
