In this paper, we present our system de- scription for the CoNLL-2012 coreference resolution task on English, Chinese and Arabic. We investigate a projection-based model in which we first translate Chinese and Arabic into English, run a publicly available coreference system, and then use a new projection algorithm to map the coreferring entities back from English in- to mention candidates detected in the Chi- nese and Arabic source. We compare to a baseline that just runs the English coref- erence system on the supplied parses for Chinese and Arabic. Because our method does not beat the baseline system on the development set, we submit outputs gen- erated by the baseline system as our final submission.
