This paper presents the LIU system for the WMT 2011 shared task for translation between German and English. For English– German we attempted to improve the translation tables with a combination of standard statistical word alignments and phrase-based word alignments. For German–English translation we tried to make the German text more similar to the English text by normalizing German morphology and performing rule-based clause reordering of the German text. This resulted in small improvements for both translation directions.
