Abstract : SYSTRAN, a Russian to English Machine Translation operating system forms the basis for a French to English MT adaptation. SYSTRAN is summarily explained followed by a development of the new dictionary, lexical routines and French structural analysis to the extent necessary to test the adaptability of SYSTRAN to accept French as a new source language. Comment sheets, flow charts and programs on the changed portions of SYSTRAN are included as appendices. The French test corpus, a human English translation and the machine translation are also included in the appendices. (Author)
