Description://W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN> *Introduction* GALE Phase 2 Chinese Broadcast Conversation Parallel Text Part 1 was developed by the Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC). Along with other corpora, the parallel text in this release comprised training data for Phase 2 of the DARPA GALE (Global Autonomous Language Exploitation) Program. This corpus contains Chinese source text and corresponding English translations selected from broadcast conversation (BC) data collected by LDC in 2006 and 2007 and transcribed by LDC or under its direction. *Data* This release includes 21 source-translation document pairs, comprising 146,082 characters of Chinese source text and its English translation. Data is drawn from seven distinct Chinese programs broadcast in 2006 and 2007 from the following sources -- China Central TV, a national and international broadcaster in Mainland China and Phoenix TV, a Hong Kong-based satellite television station. Broadcast conversation programming is generally more interactive than traditional news broadcasts and includes talk shows, interviews, call-in programs and roundtable discussions. The programs in this release focus on current events topics. The data was transcribed by LDC staff and/or transcription vendors under contract to LDC in accordance with Quick Rich Transcription guidelines developed by LDC. Transcribers indicated sentence boundaries in addition to transcribing the text. Data was manually selected for translation according to several criteria, including linguistic features, transcription features and topic features. The transcribed and segmented files were then reformatted into a human-readable translation format and assigned to translation vendors. Translators followed LDCs Chinese to English translation guidelines. Bilingual LDC staff performed quality control procedures on the completed translations. Source data and translations are distributed in TDF format. TDF files are tab-delimited files containing one segment of text along with meta information about that segment. Each field in the TDF file is described in TDF_format.text. All data are encoded in UTF-8. *Samples* Please view the following Chinese source sample and English translation sample. *Updates* None at this time. *Acknowledgement* This work was supported in part by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, GALE Program Grant No. HR0011-06-1-0003.
