Abstract : This paper describes the importance of introducing a phrase-based language model in the process of machine translation. In fact, nowadays SMT are based on phrases for translation but their language models are based on classical ngrams. In this paper we introduce a phrase-based language model (PBLM) in the decoding process to try to match the phrases of a translation table with those predicted by a language model. Furthermore, we propose a new way to retrieve phrases and their corresponding translation by using the principle of conditional mutual information. The SMT developed will be compared to the baseline one in terms of BLEU, TER and METEOR. The experimental results show that the introduction of PBLM in the translation decoding improve the results.
