Welcome to the home page of AMTA, the
Association for Machine Translation in the Americas!
AMTA is an association dedicated to anyone
interested in the translation of languages using computers in
some way. This includes people with translation needs, commercial
system developers, researchers, sponsors, and people studying,
evaluating, and understanding the science of machine translation
(MT) and educating the public on important scientific techniques
and principles involved. It provides an opportunity for commercial
developers, users--both professional translators and casual MT
users--and research scientists to meet in a convivial atmosphere
and share ideas, dreams, and hopes.
AMTA has members in Canada, Latin America,
and the United States. It is the regional component of a worldwide
network headed by the International Association for Machine Translation
(IAMT). The two sister organizations are the Asian-Pacific Association
for Machine Translation (AAMT) and the European Association for
Machine Translation (EAMT). The IAMT Council comprises a balanced
representation of all the regions. Individuals, institutions,
and corporations may join any of the three regional associations
and automatically become part of the IAMT network.
IAMT sponsors a biennial conference (the MT
Summit), publishes the MT News International newsmagazine
MTNI, and maintains links between the regions associations. Click
