Example-based machine translation

Example-based machine translation (EBMT) approach is often characterised by its use of a bilingual corpus as its main knowledge base, at run-time. It is essentially a translation by analogy and can be viewed as an implementation of case-based reasoning approach of machine learning.

First suggested by Nagao Makoto (http://www-nagao.kuee.kyoto-u.ac.jp/member/nagao) in 1984, it soon attracted the attention of scientists in the field of natural language processing.
