Distinct properties of translated text have been the subject of research in linguistics for many year (Baker, 1993) . In recent years computational methods have been developed to empirically verify the linguistic theories about translated text (Baroni and Bernardini, 2006) . While many characteristics of translated text are more apparent in comparison to the original text, most of the prior research has focused on monolingual features of translated and original text. The contribution of this

We show that these bilingual features outperform the monolingual features used in prior work (Kurokawa et al., 2009) for the task of classifying translation direction.
