Abstract

This paper presents how word alignment techniques could be used for building standardized term banks. It is shown that time and effort could be saved by a relatively simple evaluation metric based on frequency data from term pairs, and source and target distributions inside the alignment results. The proposed Q-value metric is shown to outperform other tested metrics such as Dice's coefficient, and simple pair frequency.
