The Soldiers are in the Coffee -- An Introduction to Machine Translation


Research into Machine Translation (MT) has already celebrated its fiftieth birthday, yet understanding of its successes and failures is still minimal. Even the increase in availability of Machine Translation software due to the globalisation of the Internet has had little impact. User's knowledge of the complexities behind translating remains limited and judgements are based on one off personal experiences. This article aims to bring forth into the arena some of the questions behind Machine Translation and the issues that surround them. Understanding these particular questions is the only way researchers can move closer to their dream of a society no longer hindered by language barriers.
