The Temple project has developed an open multilingual architecture and software support for rapid development of extensible Machine Translation functionalities. The targeted languages are those for which Natural Language Processing and human resources are scarce or difficult to obtain. The goal is to support rapid development of machine translation functionalities in a very short time with limited resources. The Temple Translators Workstation is incorporated into a Tipster document management architecture and it allows both translatoranalysts and monolingual analysts to use the machine- translation function for assessing the relevance of a translated document or otherwise using its information in the performance of other types of information processing. Translators can also use its output as a rough draft from which to begin the process of producing a translation, following up with specific post-editing functions.
