  • Abstract

    Malayalam is one of the Indian languages and it is a highly agglutinative and morphologically rich. These linguistic specialties of Malayalam determine the quality of all kinds of Malayalam machine translation systems. Causative sentences translations in Malayalam to English and English to Malayalam were analysed using Google Translation System and identified that causative sentence translation in these languages is not up to the mark. This paper discusses the concept and method of causative sentence handling in Malayalam to English and English to Malayalam Machine Translation Systems. A Rule-based system is proposed here to handle the causative sentence in both languages.
