What are the main ideas behind MOLTO?

The main idea is to use interlinguas based on domain semantics and equipped with reversible generation functions. Thus translation is a composition of parsing the source language and generating the target language. An implementation of this technology is provided by GF, Grammatical Framework, grammaticalframework.org. GF is in MOLTO complemented by the use of ontologies, such as used in the semantic web. We will also use methods of statistical machine translation (SMT) for improving robustness and extracting grammars from data.
