Establishment of a System to Implement the Global Sharing of Chemical Education Reading Material with the Aid of Bi-Directional Machine Translation

While modern technologies are making it possible to easily share information across the world, an adverse consequence of such globalization could be that a single language in this instance English will dominate. Easily available and cost effective translations of information are therefore highly desirable. The objective of this project is to use machine translation (MT) software to translate information on chemical education and use the web to disseminate the documents for the benefit of students, teachers, and scientist world wide.

A feasibility study is currently underway that includes the development of MT between English and three different languages: French, Russian, and Japanese. These choices will allow testing the application with languages of increasing difficulty. As the project develops it will address the needs of developing countries.
