Subject: Framework for MT Evaluation (FEMTI)

Dear all, 

We are pleased to announce that FEMTI, the Framework for Machine
Translation Evaluation in ISLE, is available for consultation at the
following mirrored URLs:

FEMTI is a structured repertoire of methods used to evaluate MT
systems. The first part of FEMTI enables evaluators to specify a
context of use for the MT system to be evaluated, while the second
part defines relevant quality characteristics and metrics.

FEMTI is a result of the ISLE Project, funded by the US National
Science Foundation and the Swiss and Danish Governments. A series of
workshops provided valuable input to the framework (see

The framework is discussed in the following article: Eduard Hovy,
Margaret King and Andrei Popescu-Belis (2002) - ''Principles of
Context-Based Machine Translation Evaluation'', Machine Translation,
17:1, p.43-75, 2002.

Users are welcome to browse the framework at the above URLs and to use
the feedback buttons to provide comments.

Estimados colegas.

Estoy confeccionando un cat�logo de publicaciones peri�dicas de
lingu�stica que publiquen art�culos en castellano, para que todos
aquellos que quieran publicar sus art�culos en castellano puedan
consultar una lista lo m�s completa posible, con direcciones y
condiciones de publicaci�n. Por lo tanto agradecer�a much�simo a todos
los que conozcan revistas de estas caracter�sticas o que tengan
responsabilidad en su edici�n si pudieran enviarme los datos de
revistas cient�ficas que publiquen art�culos en castellano, m�s a�n si
tienen las condidiones para la publicaci�n. El listado completo
aparecer� en la red y me comprometo tambi�n a enviar la lista a todos
como un resumen a LinguistList.

Muchas gracias 

Fernando Berm�dez
