Google Introduces Translated Search Tool

Google Translate is an automatic translator — that is, it works without the intervention of human translators, using state-of-the-art technology instead. Most commercial machine-translation systems in use today have been developed using a rule-based approach, and require a lot of work to define vocabularies and grammars. Our system takes a different approach; we feed the computer billions of words of text, both monolingual text in the target language, and aligned text consisting of examples of human translations between the languages. We then apply statistical learning techniques to build a translation model.
