The tool described in this article has been designed to help machine translation (MT) researchers to combine and evaluate various MT engine outputs through a web-based graphical user interface using syntactic analysis and language modelling. The tool supports user provided translations as well as translations from popular online MT system application program interfaces (APIs). The selection of the best translation hypothesis is done by calculating the perplexity for each hypothesis. The evaluation panel provides sentence tree graphs and chunk statistics. The result is a syntax-based multi-system translation tool that shows an improvement of BLEU scores compared to the best individual baseline MT. We also present a demo server with data for combining English – Latvian translations.
