We introduce a shift-reduce parsing algorithm for phrase-based string-to-dependency translation. As the algorithm generates dependency trees for partial translations left-to-right in decoding, it allows for efficient integration of both n-gram and dependency language models. To resolve conflicts in shift-reduce parsing, we propose a maximum entropy model trained on the derivation graph of training data. As our approach combines the merits of phrase-based and string-to-dependency models, it achieves significant improvements over the two baselines on the NIST Chinese-English datasets.
