Title: Statistical Machine Translation
Written By: Philipp Koehn

The dream of automatic language translation is now closer thanks to recent
advances in the techniques that underpin statistical machine translation.
This class-tested textbook from an active researcher in the field, provides
a clear and careful introduction to the latest methods and explains how to
build machine translation systems for any two languages. It introduces the
subject's building blocks from linguistics and probability, then covers the
major models for machine translation: word-based, phrase-based, and
tree-based, as well as machine translation evaluation, language modeling,
discriminative training and advanced methods to integrate linguistic
annotation. The book also reports the latest research, presents the major
outstanding challenges, and enables novices as well as experienced
researchers to make novel contributions to this exciting area. Ideal for

the latest developments in machine translation.
