This module in CSA’s eLearning series on machine translation (MT) provides an introduction to the basics of the technology. It defines MT technology and discusses the four basic types in use today and how they work: rule-based, statistical, hybrid, and neural. It then examines four common misconceptions about machine translation and its role in the language industry. This module serves as background for the remaining modules and should be viewed by anyone interested in the role of MT in a language service provider environment.
