Recognising fully, even though necessarily vaguely, the semantic difficulties because of multiple meanings, etc. As a linguist and expert on computers, do you think it is worth thinking about? We will look first of all at interlingual systems, or rather those claiming to adopt an interlingual approach.
Cited in Hutchins In a system such as the Georgetown model the program mixed language modelling, translation and the processing thereof in one program. Also knowing nothing official about, but having guessed and inferred considerable about, powerful new mechanized methods in cryptography - methods which I believe succeed even when one does not know what language has been coded - one naturally wonders if the problem of translation could conceivably be treated as a problem in cryptography.
While such packages may be useful for extracting the gist of a text they should not be seen as a serious replacement for the human translator. Indeed it can be said that the second generation 2G of "indirect" systems owed much to linguistic theories of the time.
The next section looks at "transfer" systems. Google Translate uses the SMT approach. This meant that the program was monolithic and it was easy to introduce errors when trying to rectify an existing shortcoming. A restriction of such MT systems was therefore that they were unidirectional and could not accommodate many languages unlike the systems that followed.
Thus we cannot say that the transfer module is language independent. Hutchins "The development and use of machine translation systems and computer-based translation tools". You will learn about some of the earliest astronomers and find out some of the most important discoveries of modern astronomy.
Early MT systems were predominantly parser-based, one of the first steps in such a system being to parse and tag the source language: Astronomers search out evidence to answer the mysteries of the unknown.
If you have ever asked, "How did the universe begin? The declarative nature of linguistic description could now be far more explicitly reflected in the design of programs for MT. It posited in more detail the need for and possibility of MT.
An important advance in 2G systems when compared to 1G was the separation of algorithms software from linguistic data lingware. Translation Memory TM systems are now in widespread commercial use: In the period following the ALPAC report the need was increasingly felt for an approach to MT system design which would avoid many of the pitfalls of 1G systems.
An even more radical approach to MT is the Statistical Machine Translation SMT approach, which requires the use of large bilingual corpora which serve as input for a statistical translation model: Read How Google translate worksan article by David Bellos in The Independent, 13 Septemberan extract from his book on translation Bellos As more and more corpora are added to the Web this means that Google Translate will keep improving until it reaches a point where it will be very difficult to tell that a machine has done the translation.
The nature of these transfer modules has obvious ramifications for system design in that addition of another language to a system necessitates not only modules for analysis and synthesis but also additional transfer modules, whose number is dictated by the number of languages in the existing system and which would increase polynomially according to the number of additional languages required.
The move towards separating software and lingware was hastened by parallel advances in both computational and linguistic techniques. Rules for choosing correct replacements were incorporated but functioned on a basic level; although there was some initial morphological analysis prior to dictionary lookup, subsequent local re-ordering and final generation of the target text, there was no scope for syntactic analysis let alone semantic analysis!
By this time opinion had shifted towards the view that linguistic developments should influence system design and development. In this module, you will explore what astronomers have already discovered about these big questions.Authors of this module.
