This paper describes a prototype English-Japanese machine translation (MT) system developed at the Sci- ence Institute of IBM Japan, Ltd. This MT system cur- rently aims at the translation of IBM computer manuals. It is based on a transfer approach in which the transfer phase is divided into two sub-phases: English transfor- mation and Engllsh-Japanese conversion. An outline of the system and a detailed description of the English-Japanese transfer method are presented.
