Abstract : The method of machine translation described in this article concerns the principles of organization in algorithmic language (in this case in the (ALGOL-60)) and are calculated basically for small machines. However, they can be used in multipass translators. It is natural in the structure of the translator to separate the part realizing the syntax of the language and the part realizing its sematics. In connection with this there was selected the following structure of the translator: (a) the syntax of the language is assigned a special syntactic table; (b) the semantics of the language is assigned a library of subprograms such as each syntactic unit of the language (metavariable) corresponds to its 'semantic' subprogram; (c) the operation of the translator is ensured by a certain control program, which consecutively (one by one) selects the basic symbols of the language from the recording of the algorithm, turns their sequences, according to the syntactic table into increasingly enveloping syntactic units and with the selection of each unit turns to the corresponding semantic subprogram; in other words, in a given control program the algorithm of the selection of concepts is realized.
