This paper presents an attempt to improve a specific baseline hybrid machine translation (MT) combination system by using brute force and searching through all possibilities for the best-combined translation instead of incrementally building the translation piece by piece. The result is an improved phrase-based multi-system MT system that allows improves the quality of the MT output compared to the baseline while taking much more time to produce the final output. The proposed approach shows improvement up to +3.34 points in BLEU score compared to the baselines and up to +3.61 BLEU compared to related research.
