  • The purpose of this research was to create a phrase-based statistical translation system for the under-resourced English-Xhosa language pair and evaluate its performance using the BLEU scoring system. The Moses toolkit was used along with Giza++ for alignment and IRSTLM for the language model. The researcher was unsuccessful in training an effective translator due to insufficient data and issues with the tools used. Thus the system could not be evaluated.
