Shaalan, K., A. Rafea, A. Abdel-Moneim, and H. Baraka, "Machine Translation of English Noun Phrases into Arabic", The International Journal of Computer Processing of Oriental Languages, vol. 17, no. 2, pp. 121–134, 2004. copy at


The present work reports our attempt in automating the translation of English noun phrase (NP) into Arabic. Translating NP is a very important task toward sentence translation since NPs form the majority of textual content of the scientific and technical documents. The system is implemented in Prolog and the parser is written in DCG formalism. The paper also describes our experience with the developed MT system and reports results of its application on real titles of theses from the computer science domain.
