This paper reports on the application of that methodology to a test of the DLT system and describes a synchronized bilingual data base by-product. Further use of the methodology is encouraged. Topic: Evaluation of machine translation Additional Topic: Text data bases I. DEFINITION OF LEXICAL TRANSFER Although the term lexical transfer applies most directly to machine translation systems based on a linguistic model of analysis, transfer, and generation, it can also be applied to systems in which there is...
