This paper reports on the ongoing work focused on domain adaptation of statistical machine translation using domain-speciﬁc data obtained by domain-focused web crawling. We present a strategy for crawling monolingual and parallel data and their exploitation for testing, language modelling, and system tuning in a phrase--based machine translation framework. The proposed approach is evaluated on the domains of Natural Environment and Labour Legislation and two language
