MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes Machine Translation (MT) and the associated processing of idioms. Particularly, this research examines the rule-based CAT 2 MT system and experiments with Greek sentences containing idioms. The paper also provides an in depth discussion of the resources and the procedure which have enhanced the translation of the quality of the idioms for the chosen German-Greek language pair. Greek is a morphologically rich language and the successful processing of Greek idioms within CAT 2 has proven that MT can translate idioms correctly, whatever the level of language complexity.
