This paper describes the design of a prototype machine translation system for a sublanguage of job advertis~nents. The design is based on the hy- pothesis that specialized linguistic subsystems may require special crmputational treatment and that therefore a relatively shallow analysis of the text may be sufficient for automatic translation of the sublanguage. This hypothesis and the desire to mi- nimize computation in the transfer phase has led to the adoption of a flat tree representation of the linguistic data.
