Abstract and Keywords

Many large companies have included methods of controlling the input language to minimize problems of disambiguation to improve the quality of machine translation (MT). In the large-scale enterprise systems, MT is used to produce drafts, which are then edited by bilingual personnel. A significant development has been the introduction of specialized systems, designed for Internet service providers and for large corporations to supply and edit translations of their own webpages localized to their domain, and for cross-language communication with customers. MT also finds its application in healthcare communication, the military field, and translation for foreign tourists. The future for MT lies in developing hybrid systems combining the best of the statistical and rule-based approaches. A specific target of MT for immigrants or minorities has been the translation of subtitles for television programmes. Apart from minorities and immigrants, there are other disadvantaged members of society now beginning to be helped by MT-related systems.

Keywords: input language, machine translation, cross-language communication, hybrid systems, subtitles, edit translations
