Natural Language Processing is one of the most difficult areas in artificial intelligence. Because, completely different grammatical rules (on which the languages are based on) make the task more complicated. The same problems are found in conversion of Bangla text to English text. Bangla grammar maintains so many rules which make the task harder. Although, a number of researches are done in different area such as Bangla keyboard layout design, English to Bangla translator etc., very few researches are done to translate Bangla text to English. In this paper, we developed a system to do the conversion using OpenNLP tool that performs both statistical and rule based conversion. We have found that using this conversion method it is possible to translate about 40% of text from Bangla to English correctly.
