Machine translation, multilingual systems, and natural-language processing
Areas of focus for Microsoft Research’s inquiries into computational linguistics are threefold: machine translation, to create systems and technologies that cater to today’s multitude of translation scenarios; multilingual systems, to develop a natural-language-neutral approach to all aspects of linguistic computing; and natural-language processing, to design and build software that will analyze, understand, and generate languages that humans use naturally, with the goal of enabling a user to address a computer as though addressing another person.
