This presentation will describe our research to perform high quality automatic translations of scientific texts. We have developed a complete operational system which is closely integrated into the national archive of scientific papers in France. The user can deposit an PDF document in English or French and the systems automatically provides a translation into the opposite language. The user has the opportunity to correct the translation with an interactive interface. These user interactions are recorded and reintegrated into the system to improve the translation quality. We will describe in detail the underlying techniques to adapt a generic statistical machine translation system to the domain of scientific papers. We plan to make the extracted corpora freely available to support research on the translation of scientific texts.
