Aspects of Machine-Assisted Translation in Technical Sublanguage Communication.
Technical sublanguages are discussed as a medium for communication between individuals, corporations, and non-commercial organizations. The technical translator's professional activities are regarded as a means for achieving specific goals in communication. Features of languages for specific purposes (LSP) and sublanguages are discussed briefly. Computer-assisted tools intended to ease the burden on technical translators are presented, and experiments at Nokia Telecommunications with a simple implementation of an elementary program for machine-assisted translation are described. In addition, knowledge-based methods for natural language processing are outlined and standards for the evaluation of professional performance in terms immediately related to the communication process are proposed.
