Author(s): John Beavan

One of the two mainstream approaches to machine translation consisting of parsing the Source Language (SL) text into some abstract representation (usually, some kind of annotated derivation tree), from which a lexical and structural transfer (specific to the language pair involved) is made in order to obtain a similar abstract representation in the Target Language (TL). A TL generation component then maps that representation into the TL text. The level of transfer may vary between systems, and can be anything from a syntactic tree with deep structure information, to a semantically annotated tree. Compare with Interlingua.
