This report sets out to define as objectively as possible criteria for evaluating the linguistic performance of machine translation (MT) systems. A brief review of currently available MT systems is followed by a description of existing evaluation methods. Empirical research focuses on 5 different MT systems and includes results of a survey on the use of MT in industry, administration and research in Germany, as well as two comparative performance evaluations. After mapping out the likely future of MT, the report concludes by discussing how research results from the fields of artificial intelligence, neural networks and formalised general knowledge might eventually be incorporated in the design of the mostly syntax-based MT systems in use today.
