This paper presents how the size of Textual Entailment Corpus could be increased by using Translators to generate additional 〈t, h〉 pairs. Also, we show the theoretical upper bound of a Corpus expanded by translators. Then, we propose an algorithm to expand the corpus size using Translator engines starting from a RTE Corpus, and finally we show the benefits that it could produce on RTE systems.
