This work presents a HMT system for patent translation. The system exploits the high coverage of SMT and the high precision of an RBMT system based on GF to deal with specific issues of the language. The translator is specifically developed to translate patents and it is evaluated in the English-French language pair. Although the number of issues tackled by the grammar are not extremely numerous yet, both manual and automatic evaluations consistently show their preference for the hybrid system in front of the two individual translators.
