Abstract

Machine translation, sometimes referred to by the acronym MT, is a subfield of computational linguistics that investigates the use of computer software to translate text or speech from one natural language to another. At its basic level, MT is performed as a simple substitution of atomic words in one natural language for words in another. Using corpus techniques, more complex translations may be attempted, allowing for better handling of differences in linguistic typology, phrase recognition, and translation of idioms, as well as the isolation of anomalies (Mitkov, 2003). The European Association for Machine Translation (EAMT) defines machine translation (MT) as “the application of computers to the task of translating texts from one natural language to another.”
