Great News from Google: Statistical machine translation live

Official Google Research Blog: Statistical machine translation live: "Several research systems, including ours, take a different approach: we feed the computer with billions of words of text, both monolingual text in the target language, and aligned text consisting of examples of human translations between the languages. We then apply statistical learning techniques to build a translation model. We have achieved very good results in research evaluations."

A very informative commentary by Mark Liberman is found here and a not so exciting discussion going on here.
