Resumen:   Machine Translation (MT) has, somewhat unexpectedly, made a come-back during the 1990s. The reasons, as always, are various. One is availability: systems that once were costly and running on mainframes or expensive workstations only can now be bought on CD-ROM's for ordinary personal computers at the price of a couple of specialist books. Anyone interested in MT, for whatever reason (practical, economic, scientific, technological), may now use one or even more than one translation program. Comparative use and assessment are possible. Another reason is that there has been real progress in the development of auxiliary linguistic tools like dictionary, encyclopaedia, and corpus reference, authoring and editing assistance, and especially relevant for translation -terminology management and translation memory programs (Machine-Aided Translation, MAT). It seems that MT reaps some benefit of these new developments' positive acceptance. For business and industry managers MT apparently remains interesting (often more interesting than for 'ordinary' or academic users) in spite of its shortcomings. MT was and is a great 'technological dream' which appears to have not yet been abandoned. This book intends to throw some light on the current state of its realisation. Aspects of particular interest, beside development and application, are theoretical reflections on MT and evaluation. [Source: Editor's Preface]
