This paper reports on the first results of an empirical study of translational correspondence in different text types for the English-Dutch language pair. A Gold Standard was created, which can be used as a standard data set for evaluating sub- sentential alignment. The manually indicated translational correspondences were analyzed in view of different heuristics used in existing sub-sentential alignment modules.
