Thematization across Machine and Human Translation: English to French.
Dubois, Betty Lou
IRAL, v28 n1 p43-65 Feb 1990
Comparison of human and machine French translations of independent clauses from an English journal article about physics found that automatic translation was generally faithful to the original thematization, although English complexities and lexical gaps caused the machine to lose, create, and garble some themes. The human translation, although perfectly comprehensible, substantially transformed themes. (Author/CB)
