Apertium lecture course in Tarto

Project Researcher Tommi Pirinen jointly with Francis Tyers held a course on Rule-Based Machine Translation using Apertium as a part of dissemination and outreach activities.  The course was held to enrich materials, show new research to students alongside traditional apertium-based systems and to gather feedback.


The course was a two-week intense learning course during which we taught and developed the creation of lexical data using the apertium framework and development of a baseline machine translation system for a number of local languages including Finnish, Estonian, Võru, North Saami as well as one for Malayalam and English.


The course materials are available on apertium wiki.
