The paper presents technique to interpret possessive pronouns for English to Bulgarian language syntax-based machine translation. It uses Universal Networking Language (UNL) as a formal framework to present possessive pronouns grammar features by employing semantic networks for both English and Bulgarian language. The technique includes also use of statistically-based estimation of accuracy of translation by measuring precision and recall of both training and controlled electronic text corpora and by improving related grammar rules.
