Chinese and Spanish have different morphology structures, which poses a big challenge for translating between this pair of languages. In this paper, we analyze several strategies to better generalize from the Chinese non-morphology-based language to the Spanish rich morphologybased language. Strategies use a first-step of Spanish morphology-based simplifications and a second-step of fullform generation. The latter can be done using a translation system or classification methods. Finally, both steps are combined either by concatenation in cascade or integration using a factored-based style. Ongoing experiments (based on the United Nations corpus) and their results are described.
