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 here for more information on:
