According to the characteristics of the language used in address, rules different from those of natural languages were defined and applied to automatically recognize and translate English address on postal mails. To deal with the address got from Optical Character Recognition, an English-to-Chinese address translation method based on inexact string matching technology was proposed to recognize English address and translate it into Chinese. The experimental results showed that the present method is capable of reducing the influence of OCR error, and improving the translation performance.
