I have a list of 1000 candidates for each name, from which I'm building a model to predict the correct transliteration, which is where the ranker comes into play. So far, I've used features that were a part of the output given for each of the 1000 candidates (generated from Joshua). I'm now looking to see if there are any other features I could use, particularly those from Named Entity Transliteration and Discovery in Multilingual Corpora, Klementiev and Roth <http://klementiev.org/publications/learningmt08.pdf>. Hope it's more clear now as to what I intend to do.

Thank you!
