Arabic Malay Machine Translation for a Dialogue System

Hamida Ali Almeshrky and Mohd Juzaiddin Ab Aziz

The purpose of any machine translation is set the translation by develop an automated translator sufficient in translating to achieve similar result with human translates as in case the translating from Arabic into Malay language. However, there are some challenges for translate from Arabic into Malay language where the translation depended on the purpose for which it meant according to context. In addition, Arabic and Malay languages are constructed in different structures such as free-word-order where Malay words order in target language is not the same order as the Arabic source language, pro-drop subject when it is attached as pronouns in word. To address such challenges in the system, the main goal of this research is to translate Arabic-Malay language dialogue system based on the transfer approach. Our system named AMmtDS has been created and developed. The notion of transfer approach involved three phases: analysis, transfer and generation phase. Considering the system evaluation has tested on a set of dialogues included the university campus dialogues from various Arabic dialogue books. The accuracy was 89.4% as result of comparing between human translation and our system the AMmtDS system. Based on the achieved results, the accuracy showed that the transfer based approach was available to translate a dialogue between Arabic and Malay languages.
