Hi Negacy,

You probably want phrase alignment, not only word alignment. The latter simply aligns tokens, so it wouldn't help you with endoplasmic reticulum --> endoplasmatische Retikulum but only with endoplasmic --> endoplasmatische and reticulum --> Retikulum Moses/GIZA++ is still the right tool. Regards,


PS: You could be interested in a challenge I help organizing: https://sites.google.com/site/mantraeu/clef-er-challenge
