A methodology is presented for coml)onent-l)ase(l machine translation (MT) evaluation through causal error analysis to complement existing global evalu- ation methods. This methodology is particularly :q)- propriate for knowledgc-I)ased machine translation (KBMT) systems. After a discussion o[ M'I' eval- uation criteria and the particular evahlatiou metrics proposed for KBMT, we apply this methodology to a large-scale application of the KANT,nachinc translation system, and present some sample results.
