In this paper, we report our tree based statistical translation study from English to Turkish. We describe our data generation process and report the initial results of tree-based translation under a simple model. For corpus construction, we used the Penn Treebank in the English side. We manually translated about 5K trees from English to Turkish under grammar constraints with adaptations to accommodate the agglutinative nature of Turkish morphology. We used a permutation model for subtrees together with a word to word mapping. We report BLEU scores under simple choices of inference algorithms.
