Knowledge-based interlingual machine translation systems produce semantically accurate translations, but typically require massive knowledge acquisi- tion. Ongoing research and development at the Center for Machine Translation has focussed on re- ducing this requirement to produce large-scale prac- tical applications of knowledge-based MT. This pa- per describes KANT, the first system to combine principled source language design, semi-automated knowledge acquisition, and know ledge compilation techniques to produce fast, high-quality translation to multiple languages.
