Report on the state of machine translation in the United States and Great Britain

This Report on the state of machine translation in the United States and Great Britain is by Yehoshua Bar Hillel of the Hebrew University.
Technical Report No. 1
Jerusalem, Israel 15 February 1959

Machine translation, sometimes referred to by the abbreviation MT, is a sub-field 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 performs simple substitution of 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.

Date : 15th February 1959

This exhibit has a reference ID of CH11303. Please quote this reference ID in any communication with the Centre for Computing History.
