Moses is a statistical machine translation system, and an open-source software (under the LGPL license) which is developed by the University of Edinburgh. Moses is now widely used in the academic community and businesses who do research and apply machine translation. This system also provides utilities to help developers build translation system model for any language pairs, providing that there are a large amounts of bilingual texts for the training and a store of monolingual texts for the construction of target language model.
As a base- line system, the statistical translation machines can be built based on Moses. Certainly, to make the difference and to achieve high quality in translation, these translation machines should have specific language processions for each language pair. This is also the research direction of many researchers when using Moses platform in developing their own translation machine.
