Abstract: Over the past 50-odd years, machine translation has made great progress in terms of its aim, theory, technical approach and even the commercialization and industrialization of MT systems. In particular, along with the globalization of world economy and the rapid development of information technology, the world has seen a greater-than-ever demand for MT products, which has brought along an upsurge of MT research and development. In this feast of MT, however, there exist some undercurrents or pitfalls with regard to the supporting theories, technical approaches, marketing strategies, etc. To tackle the tough MT problems and enhance the quality of MT systems, we must keep an open mind in the pursuit of innovative MT attempts.
