Title REFTEX - A Context-Based Translation Aid
Venue Annual Meeting of The European Chapter of The Association of Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference
Year 1987

The system presented in this paper pro- duces bilingual passages of text from an original (source) text and one (or more) of its translated versions. The source text passage includes words or word compounds which a translator wants to retrieve for the current translating of another text. The target text passage is the equivalent version of the source text passage. On the basis of a comparison of the contexts of these words in the concor- ded passage and his own text, the transla- tor has to decide on the utility of the translation proposed in the target text passage. The program might become a component of translator's work bench.
