Title Dialogue Translation Vs. Text Translation
Venue International Conference on Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference
Year 1988

The authors discuss the differences of envi~on- meats whexe dialogue translation and textual trans- lation systems might be used. The differences are summarized as clear definition of information and active participations of speakers and hearers in di- alogue t~anslation. A new approach to MT, inter- pretation based approach, is proposed to take the advantages of dialogue translation environments. The approach introduces a layer o/ understand- ing to MT and can produce less structure bound translations than conventional approaches.
