Abstract: This paper evaluates the performance of our recently proposed automatic machine translation evaluation metric MaxSim and examines the impact of translation fluency on the metric. MaxSim calculates a similarity score between a pair of English system-reference sentences by comparing information items such as n-grams across the sentence pair. Unlike most metrics which perform binary matching, MaxSim also computes similarity scores between items and models them as nodes in a bipartite graph to select a maximum weight matching. Our experiments show that MaxSim is competitive with state-of-the-art metrics on benchmark datasets. © Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2009.
