The standard design for a computer-assisted translation system consists of data entry of source text, machine translation, and revision of raw machine translation. This paper discusses this standard design and presents an alternative multi- level design consisting of integrated word process- ing, terminology aids, preprocessing aids and a link to an off-line machine translation system. Advantages of the new design are discussed. I THE STANDARD DESIGN FOR A COMPUTER- ASSISTED TRANSLATION SYSTEM. The standard design for a computer-assisted translation system consists of three phases: (A) data entry of the source text, (B) machine translation of the text, and (C) human revision of the raw machine translation. Most machine trans- lation projects of the past thirty years have used this design w...
