Of late English has become one of the most preferred language worlds over. However, not everyone on this globe is a conversant with this medium of communication. Machine Translation has become indispensable in such a scenario where physical and logical boundaries are vanishing and one need to be able to communicate at will and in a medium which he is conversant with. At present Machine Translation is the most fascinating but equally a challenging problem. Researchers are trying to translate English language to their native language, but achieving a flawless Machine Translation has become a real challenge for researchers all over the world. This paper discusses various open challenges in machine translation with a focus on the problems encountered in English to Urdu Machine Translation. We also discuss the parallel corpora, which we feel is a key concept in Machine Translation and may provide a better solution to these open challenges in Machine Translation.
Keywords: Machine Translation Challenges, Parallel Corpora
