The report presents results of 12-month R and D in German-English mechanical translation on syntactic level. The effort was aimed at expanding a syntactic translation capability within the framework of the Language Translation System LTS. Additional transfer grammar rules, linking two monolingual German and English syntactic descriptions, were designed and coded. German and English grammar data compiled under previous contracts were expanded. Grammatical descriptions are in context-free phrase-structure form with transformational facility provided in the structure of the interlingual transfer coding. The grammars were verified in the processing system against samples of text data in German and English. Ten paragraphs of German text were translated on trial basis. Author
