This paper describes an empirical study of the phrase-based decoding algorithm
proposed by Chang and Collins (2017). The algorithm produces a translation by
processing the source-language sentence in strictly left-to-right order, differing
from commonly used approaches that build the target-language sentence in
left-to-right order. Our results show that the new algorithm is competitive with
Moses (Koehn et al., 2007) in terms of both speed and BLEU scores.
