Sinhala to English Language Translator
This paper describes a machine translation system that is capable of translating a grammatically correct Sinhala sentence in to its corresponding English sentence. This is the first Sinhala to English machine translation system, which comes with features such as an inbuilt keyboard, an inbuilt dictionary, an integrated word processor based on Unicode fonts, a grammar tool, a Sinhalese grammar checker, an add word tool, and a debugging tool. With the expansion of the world, English has become an important language that people should learn, as the majority of the worldwide population understand and carry out their day-to-day work in English. In addressing this need, we thought of taking up the challenge of building, a Sinhala to English language translator. To build this system, we used the transfer-based machine translation approach, which is a rule-based approach. At present, the system has achieved a success rate of 75% with a corpus of 150 sentences.
