The most promising approach to the challenge of translating MWEs is example based MT, because in this case each MWE can be listed as an example with its translation equivalent in the target language.
For rule based MT it would be to difficult to define rules to translate MWEs, due to the magnitude of different kinds of MWEs.
Nevertheless, an example based MT system has to apply different rules for the translation of continuous and discontinuous MWEs as it is harder to identify a discontinuous MWE in a sentence where words are inserted between the different components of one MWE.

Famous quotes containing the word approaches:
“The Oriental philosophy approaches easily loftier themes than the modern aspires to; and no wonder if it sometimes prattle about them. It only assigns their due rank respectively to Action and Contemplation, or rather does full justice to the latter. Western philosophers have not conceived of the significance of Contemplation in their sense.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“A politician is a statesman who approaches every question with an open mouth.”
—Adlai Stevenson (19001965)
“The closer a man approaches tragedy the more intense is his concentration of emotion upon the fixed point of his commitment, which is to say the closer he approaches what in life we call fanaticism.”
—Arthur Miller (b. 1915)
