Abstract : Second generation computers heretofore used in machine translation R and D are now being replaced by third generation machinery. As a result, machine translation programs developed in the past are obsolescent. The goal of this study was to ease the transition of machine translation programming and research into the new machine environment. To satisfy this goal, information as to the structure and operational environment of recent machine translation programs was gathered and analyzed. A result of the analysis was the definition and implementation (on a third generation computer in widespread use) of a group of subroutines. These subroutines provide the functions having the greatest currency within existing machine translation programs. The report documents the study performed as well as the computer programs resulting from this study. (Author)
