Abstract:

The paper describes a computer-based language translation system designed and built using the MIND System. The translation technique is called human-aided translation and differs from conventional machine translation systems in that it does not require a bilingual editor in the translation process. Instead, the system relies on a monolingual consultant to resolve ambiguities in the translation process. The system is modular in design, extensible, and independent of source and target languages.
