Abstract  This paper introduces an Example-Based Machine Translation (EBMT) method for Oracle Bone Inscriptions(OBI). The key technologies in the example library building process, similarity algorithm of example sentences and example retrieval algorithm are proposed. And a machine translation system is developed to verify the proposed method. Experimental results show that the target sentences obtained by the machine translation can meet the demands of OBI researchers.
Key wordsOracle bone inscriptions      EBMT      Bilingual parallel corpus      Sentence similarity
