Machine Translation Books

Just want to collect Machine Translation related books in the literature:

1) "Statistical Machine Translation" by Philipp Koehn
--> will try to buy this book if I have money hehe :D.

2) TBA

Just an immediate thought about constraints in SMT decoding

Cohesive constraints in Beam Search Phrasal Decoding

Just think of whether other constraints (e.g. reordering, chunking, translation boundaries, ...) can be integrated into a beam search phrasal SMT decoding. (try to validate this later!).

(Linguistically Annotated Reordering:
--> Idea: given a set of reordering rules manually annotated by humans, the questions is how to use it during SMT decoding???

Translation Boundaries:
