Editor for this issue: Karen Milligan <karenlinguistlist.org>


We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Message 1: machine translation of dialogue

From: Sherri Condon <scondonmitre.org>
Subject: machine translation of dialogue

I will greatly appreciate any information that LINGUISTS' collective
expertise can provide about work being conducted on machine translation
of dialogues (as opposed to more self-contained texts such as news, web
sites, or other literature).

People who are kind enough to respond can send their replies to me at
the address below, and I will post a summary to the list.

Thanks,
Sherri
