In this document we report on a user scenario based evaluation aiming at assessing the perfor- mance of a machine translation (MT) system in a real context of use. This extrinsic evaluation exemplifies a framework that makes it possible to estimate MT performance and to verify if im- provements of MT technology lead to better performance in a real usage scenario. We report on the evaluation of Moses baselines for several languages in a cross-lingual IT helpdesk scenario.
