We present an overview of the overall architecture of the language-processing component of an English-Text to Sign-Languages translation system. Initially relevant aspects of sign languages and the influence these have on the design decisions in the translation system are described. Focusing on the analysis stage, we then present the syntactic, semantic and discourse oriented natural language processing (NLP) techniques, that are implemented to generate the DRS-based semantic representation from English text. We also give an account on the pronoun resolution algorithm, which is tightly coupled with the DRS creation.
