Machine translation (MT) was one of the first non-numerical
applications of the computer in the 1950s and 1960s. With limited
equipment and programming tools, researchers from a wide range of
disciplines (electronics, linguistics, mathematics, engineering, etc.)
tackled the unknown problems of language analysis and processing,
investigated original and innovative methods and techniques, and laid
the foundations not just of current MT systems and computerized tools
for translators but also of natural language processing in
general. This volume contains contributions by or about the major MT
pioneers from the United States, Russia, East and West Europe, and
Japan, with recollections of personal experiences, colleagues and
rivals, the political and institutional background, the successes and
disappointments, and above all the challenges and excitement of a new
field with great practical importance. Each article includes a
personal bibliography, and the editor provides an overview, chronology
and list of sources for the period.
