A basic task in machine translation is to choose the right translation for source words with several possible translations in the target language. In this paper we treat word translation as a word sense disambiguation problem and train memory-based classifiers on words with alternative translations. The training data was automatically labeled with the corresponding translations by word-aligning a parallel corpus. Results show that many words were translated with accuracy above the baseline.
