dc.description.abstractIn this paper we show that a hierarchical phrasebased translation system will outperform a classical (nonhierarchical) phrase-based system in the English-to-Persian translation direction, yet for the Persian-to-English direction, the classical phrase-based system is preferable. We seek to explain why this is so, and detail a series of translation experiments with our SMT system using various bilingual corpora each with both toolkits Moses (non-hierarchical) and Joshua (hierarchical).en_NZ
