Pattern-based machine translation needs translation patterns. Such translation patterns are usually made manually. A high-quality translation can be obtained if the input sentence matches the translation pattern and this translation pattern is correct. But it costs a lot to make translation patterns.
We propose to make translation patterns automatically in order to decrease the cost. And we select translations by using word tri-gram scores.
Finally, we demonstrated the effectiveness of the proposed method in English-Japanese machine translation experiments.
