Abstract

The TrIM prototype provides machine translation services to instant messaging users. TrIM and related prototypes are intended for use in coalition environments. A secure version of TrIM will be included in Coalition Collaboration MOIE system. Translation services are provided by wrapping machine translation software (Cybertrans) as a Simple Instant Messaging Presence (SIMP) client - see http://simp.mitre.org.

Simple Instant Messaging and Presence Protocol (SIMP)

Simple Instant Messaging and Presence (SIMP) defined a protocol and sample implementation for a highly distributed service architecture for instant messaging.

This is needed to meet operational requirements for government networks.

SIMP was developed in support of the IETF IMPP standardization effort; http://simp.mitre.org.

SIMP uses email as a model: many servers, many clients, local administration, global access.

Rather than store-and-forward, deliver-or-drop.

SIMP is first instance of Collaboration Fabrics approach to collaboration services.

TrIM: Translingual Instant Messaging

The TrIM prototype provides machine translation services to instant messaging users.

TrIM and related prototypes are intended for use in coalition environments.

  A secure version of TrIM will be included in Coalition Collaboration MOIE system.

Translation services are provided by wrapping machine translation software (Cybertrans) as a SIMP client.

  The SIMP protocol is used to request and deliver translations.

  This architecture allows fine-grained distribution of translation services.
