Word Completion- A First Step Toward Target-Text Mediated IMT

  title={Word Completion- A First Step Toward Target-Text Mediated IMT},
  author={George F. Foster and Pierre Isabelle and Pierre Plamondon},
We argue that the conventional approach to Interactive Machine ~Ih-anslation is not the best way to p rov ide assistance to skilled translators, and propose an alternative whose central feature is the use of the target text as a medium of interaction. We describe an automat ic wordcompletion system intended to serve as a vehicle for exploring the feasibility of this new approach, and give results in terms of keystrokes saved in a test corpus.
