Abstract: Machine translation is the process of translating a text from one language to another, using computer software. A translation system is important to overcome language barriers, and help people communicate between different parts of the world. Most of popular online translation system caters only for the most commonly used languages but no research has been made so far concerning the translation of the Mauritian Creole language. In this paper, we present the first machine translation (MT) system that translates English sentences to Mauritian Creole language and vice-versa. The system uses the rule based machine translation approach to perform translation. It takes as input sentences in the source language either in English or Creole and outputs the translation of the sentences in the target language. The results show that the system can provide translation of acceptable quality. This system can potentially benefit many categories of people, since it allow them to perform their translation quickly and with ease.
