Within the PRESEMT project, we have explored a hybrid approach to machine translation in which a small parallel corpus is used to learn mapping rules between grammatical constructions in the two languages, and large target-language corpora are used for refining translations. We have also taken forward methods for ‘corpus measurement’, including an implemented framework for measuring the distance between any two corpora of the same language. We briefly describe developments in both these areas.
