Wikipedia gives us the following definition of machine translation:

“Machine translation, sometimes referred to by the abbreviation MT, is a sub-field of computational linguistics that investigates the use of computer software to translate text or speech from one natural language to another. At its basic level, MT performs simple substitution of words in one natural language for words in another. Using corpus techniques, more complex translations may be attempted, allowing for better handling of differences in linguistic typology, phrase recognition, and translation of idioms, as well as the isolation of anomalies.”

The translation process may be stated as:

  1. Decoding the meaning of the source text; and
  2. Re-encoding this meaning in the target language.
