Workshop on data creation for Apertium RBMT language pairs

We are back to you to share the materials of the Workshop on data creation created within the Abu-MaTran project as one of the outreach activities planned.

This workshop, entitled “Workshop on the Apertium free/open-source machine translation platform: basics on how to control the engine through linguistics”, took place in November 2014 at the University of Zagreb (Croatia) and aims at encouraging people to contribute to the Apertium platform for the creation of data (dictionaries and manually disambiguated corpora) for South-Slavic languages.

Newcomers and already Apertium contributors are targeted as testers of a new approach seeking to low the bar for contributions through experimental user interfaces.

We are making available:

All materials are distributed with free/open-source licenses. For a copy of the original files, just contact us.
