Indian Language Machine Translation (ILMT)
ILMT System has been developed by a consortium of academic and research institutions working in the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology.
The objective of this project was to develop machine translation technology from Indian languages to Indian languages. The systems were based on the technology on real-life systems, with a given level of translation accuracy, and capable of further improvement using machine learning techniques. As a product ILMT System was developed for three distinct usage scenarios, i.e. general purpose, tourism domain, and health domain.
The aim of the ILMT System was to develop a translation system where the following holds well with respect to the users.
- The user does not know the source language.
- The user is a native speaker of target language.
- Translated output is comprehendible i.e., the human user can make a meaning out of the translated output.
- There is no major ambiguity, and lastly
- It is a usable system.
