Abstract: In translation divergence is a key element between two languages. This divergence problem arises when a sentence of a source text/document translated into target sentence and it is structurally different. Machine Translation needs to work upon the problems of divergence occurring between two languages. There are various Machine Translation developers who have already paid attention to this problem yet, it is not that easy to develop common strategies which can be applied for any language pair. Hence, there is a lot of study needed to be done in the field of translation divergence for different pairs of languages. In this present paper, a different pattern of translation divergence between two languages that is the Hindi-English language pair has been discussed. The various constructions for both the languages have been elaborated to identify the divergence in the Hindi English language pair. This will give us a way to come up with strategies to handle these situations and come up with correct translation. This paper is based on Sinha & Thakur (2005), who have based their study on Bonnie J. Dorr’s (1994) classification. This paper thus focuses on the various categories of divergence in Hindi-English language pair.
