This is paper is a survey of the current machine translation research in the US, Eu-rope, and Japan. A short history of machine translation is presented first, followed by
an overview of the current research work. Representative examples of a wide range of
different approaches adopted by machine translation researchers are presented. These
are described in detail along with a discussion of the practicalities of scaling up these
approaches for operational environments. In support of this discussion, issues in, and
techniques for, evaluating machine translation systems are discussed.
