The paper aims in developing Bilingual Translation System for English and Tamil using hybrid approach. We use Rule Based Machine Translation (RBMT) and Knowledge Based Machine Translation (KBMT) techniques. Since it’s a bilingual translation system both English to Tamil and Tamil to English translation are possible. The simple sentences are translated using the rules in RBMT. The complex sentences are split/ converted into simple sentences using KBMT and translated using RBMT and then processed to get text in target language. It is restricted to the domain Weather Report and can be expanded to other domains in future.
