Saint- Petersburg, Russia – April 04, 2005 – PROMT, the leading provider of machine translation technologies, announced that the brief guide to PROMT Machine Translation Technology has been added to the page White Papers at www.e-promt.com. The document, mainly focusing on the PROMT machine translation technology, describes the historical background of machine translation (MT), the advantages of MT technology used by PROMT, features of its work, types of translation demands, PROMT customization tools etc.

“MT systems work with natural language - a data set that is infinitely varying, ambiguous, and structurally complex. To translate adequately, an MT system must encode knowledge of hundreds of syntactic patterns, variations, and exceptions, as well as relationships among these patterns. Machine translation software should be provided with ever-changing vocabulary and specific semantic knowledge about the usage patterns of tens of thousands of words. The system is to ensure the accurate identification of the parts of speech and grammatical characteristics of words which may, in different contexts, be nouns, verbs, or adjectives, each having many possible translations. Translation also requires a vast store of knowledge about the world, the intent of the communication, and the subject matter.”
