Abstract: This paper proposes to enrich RBMT dictionaries with Named Entities (NEs) automatically acquired from Wikipedia. The method is applied to the Apertium English-Spanish system and its performance compared to that of Apertium with and without handtagged NEs. The system with automatic NEs outperforms the one without NEs, while results vary when compared to a system with handtagged NEs (results are comparable for Spanish to English but slightly worst for English to Spanish). Apart from that, adding automatic NEs contributes to decreasing the amount of unknown terms by more than 10%.
