Abstract: In this paper we have explored a pivot-based approach in development of machine translation system whose parallel corpus is not available. For our study, we have taken Arabic-Hindi as the language pair for development of MT system and Urdu as the pivot language. We have developed 4 MT systems using this approach. These 4 MT systems work on different methodologies. Among them Hierarchical Phrase Based Machine Translation System produced better results.
