We investigate the impact of parse quality on a syntactically-informed statistical ma- chine translation system applied to techni- cal text. We vary parse quality by vary- ing the amount of data used to train the parser. As the amount of data increases, parse quality improves, leading to im- provements in machine translation output and results that significantly outperform a state-of-the-art phrasal baseline.
