This paper investigates the idea of making effective use of bridge language technique to respond to minimal parallel-resource data set bottleneck reality to improve translation quality in the case of Persian-Spanish low-resource language pair using a well-resource language such as English as the bridge one. We apply the optimized direct-bridge combination scenario to enhance the translation performance. We analyze the effects of this scenario on our case study.
