Machine Translation is a sub-field of computational linguistics that investigates the use of software to translate text or speech from one natural language to another. With development of technologies in the past years, machine translation has evolved significantly. In addition, many companies such as Google, Yahoo, and SysTrans have provided users with translation tools with more accurate translation between languages. However, machine translation is still a difficult problem because of high ambuguity of natural languages. My presentation will provide a brief history of machine translation, how they process the natural languages, different approaches to machine translation, progress and potential of machine translation in the future.
