Abstract:

The field of machine translation (MT)--the automation of translation
between human languages--has existed for more than fifty years. MT
helped to usher in the field of computational linguistics and has
influenced methods and applications in knowledge representation,
information theory, and mathematical statistics.

This valuable resource offers the most historically significant
English-language articles on MT. The book is organized in three
sections. The historical section contains articles from MT's
beginnings through the late 1960s. The second section, on theoretical
and methodological issues, covers sublanguage and controlled input,
the role of humans in machine-aided translation, the impact of certain
linguistic approaches, the transfer versus interlingua question, and
the representation of meaning and knowledge. The third section, on
system design, covers knowledge-based, statistical, and example-based
approaches to multilevel analysis and representation, as well as
computational issues.
