As a footnote, it is interesting to note that Washington DC was chosen as the venue of the third MT summit in 1991. The previous summits were held in Japan (1988) and Germany (1989), and the decision to hold the third in the United States was itself illustrative of the return to centre stage of American MT.

Finally, although the quality of the available systems is in many cases far from ideal, and is largely based on outdated technology, the systems do sell. The market is substantial and is Machine translation today 23 continuing to grow. Indeed, demand probably exceeds supply— which may account for the apparent customer satisfaction with low-quality products. Before moving on, let us look briefly at the public profile of MT in Western Europe. g.
