Réflexions sur la localisation, l'étiquetage, la reconnaissance et la traduction d'expressions linguistiques complexes

Cédrick Fairon, Jean Senellart

Abstract : We describe a process translating automatically time adverbs from English to French. The mechanism is based on the use of finite state transducers. We discuss about the different ways of locating complex linguistic sentences. In order to translate this sentences, we show that the description must be accurate and that the tagging process is not involved. The quality of the translation obtained in this application is an indirect proof of the validity of our description method. Besides, we show the limitations of local approaches to translation.
