A machine translation method includes determining source language text to be translated and obtaining a translation rule table, which has been trained in advance, that includes multiple translation rules associated with the target language text and the source language text in multiple languages; determining candidate results of the target language text; and determine the target language text to be output based on the candidate results. During the translation, a specific language of the source language text need not to be specified by a user. The implementations improve accuracy of the translation, and avoid errors introduced from the process of language identification during recognizing unknown languages. The implementations avoid developing a translation engine for an individual source language of text to be translated for a certain target language, and therefore save development costs and computing resources.
