Preference Semantics, and intelligent relaxation of constraints in handling lexical ambiguity. The approach differs from many previous MT systems in that it is more powerful than ‘brute force’(More)

To design such systems, the major issue is how to assure the user that the translation is correct without understanding either the source or the target language. This paper first discusses the various approaches to assuring correct translation in a(More)
