Description:*Introduction* GALE Phase 3 and 4 Chinese Newswire Parallel Text was developed by the Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC). Along with other corpora, the parallel text in this release comprised training data for Phases 3 and 4 of the DARPA GALE (Global Autonomous Language Exploitation) Program. This corpus contains Chinese source text and corresponding English translations selected from newswire data collected by LDC between 2007 and 2008 and translated by LDC or under its direction. *Data* GALE Phase 3 and 4 Chinese Newswire Parallel Text includes 367 source-translation document pairs, comprising 210,048 tokens of Chinese source text and its English translation. Data is drawn from five distinct Chinese newswire sources. Data was manually selected for translation according to several criteria, including linguistic features and topic features. The files were formatted into a human-readable translation format and assigned to translation vendors. Translators followed LDC's 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.txt. All data are encoded in UTF-8. *Acknowledgement* This work was supported in part by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, GALE Program Grant No. HR0011-06-1-0003.
