Abstract : Most of the work on the dictionary problem for machine translation has consisted of attempts to reduce the amount of information involved, thus bringing the problem within the capabilities of presently available or soon-to-be-available computing equipment. This paper presents a technique for handling the problem with currently available computing equipment and without the complexities of information compression. In essence, the approach is to compile a glossary of forms from the current text and then to retrieve information about each from the dictionary as the information is needed in the translation process.
