Development of German-English Machine Translation System.
Lehmann, Winifred P.; Stachowitz, Rolf
This report documents efforts over a five-month period toward completion of a pilot system for machine translation of German scientific and technical literature into English. The report is divided into three areas: grammar formalism, programming, and linguistics. Work on grammar formalism concentrated mainly on increasing the power of the subscript grammar to prevent intermediate "forced" readings. Work in system construction concentrated on the completion of the grammar maintenance programs and on the core of the systems programs used by all analysis and production algorithms. The linguistic work concentrated on the coverage of the German surface syntax, the "choice rules" for the generation of the corresponding deep structures and their grammatical description.
