The translation of foreign language texts by computers was one of the first tasks that the pioneers of computing and artificial intelligence set themselves. Machine translation is again becoming an important field of research and development as the need for translations of technical and commercial documentation is growing beyond the capacity of the translation profession. This is the first textbook of machine translation, providing a full course on both general machine tranlation systems characteristics and the computational linguistic foundations of the field.
