|The AST (automated semantic analysis) system serves as a final pipeline component in translating natural language sentences to formulae of higher-order logic formalism, the Transparent Intensional Logic (TIL). TIL was designed as a full expressive tool capable of representing complex meaning relations of natural language expressions. AST was designed as a language independent tool, which was originally developed for the Czech language. In this paper, we summarize the latest development of AST aiming at easy transfer of the underlying lexicons and rules to other languages. The changes are test with the English language selected as a representative of a different language family than Czech having general multilingual applicability of the process in mind.
