摘要：Context of culture affects the specific meaning of the language. So the analysis of cultural context is essential for Machine Translation (MT). If the cultural context analysis of the source language is omitted in MT, ambiguity or mistranslation will be produced. The paper analyzes briefly the present situation of MT first and then, based on the theory of cultural context, it discusses with examples the importance of cultural context analysis in MT. The paper holds that if the cultural context analysis is paid enough attention in MT, the literal meaning and cultural connotation of source language can be exactly and completely translated into target language so as to improve the quality of MT. Therefore, the large-scale context corpus is very necessary for MT. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2013.
