Hybrid Machine Translation focuses on combining the best properties of
different Machine Translation (MT) paradigms. Nowadays, it is very popular
to include linguistic features in Statistical Machine Translation (SMT)
systems or to modify the standard Rule-based Machine Translation (RBMT)
architecture to include statistical knowledge. Other ways of hybridization
include the system combination techniques which may combine a rich variety
of translation paradigms.

This special issue in the prestigious Computer Speech and Language journal
will cover different approaches from Hybrid Machine Translation and take
advantage of the latest and leading research to discuss the progress in the

This special issue invites contributions related to (but not limited):


   theoretical and experimental design of hybrid MT architectures

   experimental results with hybrid MT systems guided by corpus-based or
   rule-based systems

   introduction of linguistics in corpus-based approaches

   rule-based systems extended or built with statistical information

   induction of lexical or grammatical transfer rules from corpora

   description of open source tools and language resources for hybrid MT

   description of computationally efficient algorithms for hybrid MT

   applications of hybrid MT systems

   hybrid methods applied to spoken language translation (SLT)

   hybrid evaluation methods

   system combination of different MT and SLT paradigms.
