Dear all,

We are pleased to announce that FEMTI, the Framework for Machine
Translation Evaluation in ISLE, is available for consultation at the
following mirrored URLs:

FEMTI is a structured repertoire of methods used to evaluate MT systems.
  The first part of FEMTI enables evaluators to specify a context of use

relevant quality characteristics and metrics.

FEMTI is a result of the ISLE Project, funded by the US National Science
Foundation and the Swiss and Danish Governments.  A series of workshops
provided valuable input to the framework (see

The framework is discussed in the following article:
Eduard Hovy, Margaret King and Andrei Popescu-Belis (2002) - "Principles
of Context-Based Machine Translation Evaluation", Machine Translation,
17:1, p.43-75, 2002.

Users are welcome to browse the framework at the above URLs and to use
the feedback buttons to provide comments.
