Summary: 
We describe a novel idea to improve machine translation by combining multiple candidate translations and extra translations. Without manual work, extra translations can be generated by identifying and hybridizing the syntactic equivalents in candidate translations. Candidate and extra translations are then combined on sentence level for better general translation performance.
