AbstractWe describe the system entered by the National Research Council Canada in the SemEval-2014 L2 writing assistant task. Our system relies on a standard Phrase-Based Statistical Machine Transla- tion trained on generic, publicly available data. Translations are produced by taking the already translated part of the sentence as fixed context. We show that translation systems can address the L2 writing assis- tant task, reaching out-of-five word-based accuracy above 80 percent for 3 out of 4 language pairs. We also present a brief analysis of remaining errors.
