    2. System and method for estimating accuracy of an automatic natural language translation

      A computer system and method for natural language translation uses a translation process to translate a source natural language segment (e.g. English) of one or more source words/elements into a target natural language (e.g. German) segment of one or more target words/elements. An evaluation module determines a confidence measure of the natural language translation. Typically, the confidence measure indicates less confidence as the complexity of the translation increases. Various novel features for determining complexity and confidence measure at different steps in the translation are used. The translation process can be terminated if the confidence measure fails ...

    5. Automated system for generating natural language translations that are domain-specific, grammar rule-based, and/or based on part-of-speech analysis

      Systems and methods for automated natural language translation take source natural language and translate it into a target natural language. The language translation is facilitated through the use of domain specific dictionaries, controlling grammar rules, and probability values associated with some dictionary entries. Domain specific dictionaries provide different translations of words depending on the context in which the words are used. Controlling grammar rules are used to supersede all other grammar rules to eliminate inaccurate and undesirable translations. Probability values are used to determine the likelihood a particular multi-word combination is a particular part of speech.

    6. Method of and system for disambiguating syntactic word multiples

      A method and system are provided for disambiguating multiples of syntactically related words automatically using the notion of semantic similarity between words.
