Description:*Introduction* This release is Part 1 of the three-part GALE Phase 1 Chinese Broadcast News Parallel Text, which, along with other corpora, was used as training data in year 1 (Phase 1) of the DARPA-funded GALE program. This corpus contains transcripts and English translations of 23.3 hours of Chinese broadcast news programming. As indicated below, a small number of audio files corresponding to the text in this corpus have been previously released. *Source Data* A total of 23.3 hours of Chinese broadcast news programming was selected from two sources, China Central TV (CCTV) (a broadcaster from Mainland China) and Phoenix TV (a Hong Kong-based satellite TV station). The transcripts and translations represent recordings of five different programs. A manual selection procedure was used to choose data appropriate for the GALE program, namely, news programs focusing on current events. Stories on topics such as sports, entertainment news, and stock markets were excluded from the data set. The following table is a summary of the files included in this release. *Samples* * Jpeg screen capture of the Chinese source text * Original Chinese source text. * English Translation *Sponsorship* This work was supported in part by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, GALE Program Grant No. HR0011-06-1-0003.
