Apertium translation platform

Apertium is a free/open-source machine translation platform.

It is possible to use Apertium to build machine translation systems for a variety of language pairs; to that end, Apertium uses simple XML-based standard formats to encode the linguistic data needed (either by hand or by converting existing data), which are compiled using the provided tools into the high-speed formats used by the engine.

The Apertium architecture is being developed by the Transducens research group at the Departament de Llenguatges i Sistemes Informàtics of the Universitat d'Alacant in collaboration with Prompsit Language Engineering.

Apertium welcomes new developers: if you think you can improve the engine or the tools, or develop linguistic data for them, do not hesitate to contact them.
