Proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Free/Open-Source Rule-Based Machine Translation

This paper describes the development of a two-way shallow-transfer rulebased machine translation system between Bulgarian and Macedonian. It gives an account of the resources and the methods used for constructing the system, including the development of monolingual and bilingual dictionaries, syntactic transfer rules and constraint grammars. An evaluation of the system’s performance was carried out and compared to another commercially available MT system for the two languages. Some future work was suggested.
