I will describe a system that automatically mines English-Chinese translation pairs from large amount of monolingual Chinese web pages. Our approach is motivated by the observation that many Chinese terms (e.g., named entities that are not stored in a conventional dictionary) are accompanied by their English translations in the Chinese web pages. Candidate translations are extracted using pre-defined templates. Transliterations and translation pairs are then identified using statistical learning methods. We compare several approaches for aligning transliterations and mining translations on more than 300GB of Chinese web pages.
