Hybrid Machine Translation focuses on combining the best properties of
different Machine Translation (MT) paradigms. Nowadays, it is very
popular to include linguistic features in Statistical Machine
Translation (SMT) systems or to modify the standard Rule-based Machine
Translation (RBMT) architecture to include statistical knowledge. Other
ways of hybridization include the system combination techniques which
may combine a rich variety of translation paradigms.

This special issue in the prestigious Computer Speech and Language
journal will cover different approaches from Hybrid Machine Translation
and take advantage of the latest and leading research to discuss the
progress in the field.

This special issue invites contributions related to (but not limited):

   1. theoretical and experimental design of hybrid MT architectures
   2. experimental results with hybrid MT systems guided by
      corpus-based or rule-based systems
   3. introduction of linguistics in corpus-based approaches
   4. rule-based systems extended or built with statistical information
   5. induction of lexical or grammatical transfer rules from corpora
   6. description of open source tools and language resources for hybrid
   7. description of computationally efficient algorithms for hybrid MT
   8. applications of hybrid MT systems
   9. hybrid methods applied to spoken language translation (SLT)
   10. hybrid evaluation methods
   11. system combination of different MT and SLT paradigms.
