This paper investigates the effect of source language on translations using two variants of a Korean translation corpus. The sentences are translations of a bilingual travel corpus. The original corpus was compiled from Japanese-English parallel sentences collected from more than 300 phrase books in order to build a Japanese-English machine translation system mainly for Japanese traveling abroad. The corpora used for this research consist of 324,616 Korean sentences. Half of the Korean sentences (162,308 sentences: henceforth, KJ) were translated from Japanese and the other half (henceforth, KE) have been translated from English sentences which match the Japanese.
