Shallow-transfer machine translation engine
An open-source shallow-transfer machine translation
engine, Apertium is initially aimed at related-language pairs.
It uses finite-state transducers for lexical processing,
hidden Markov models for part-of-speech tagging, and
finite-state based chunking for structural transfer.
The system is largely based upon systems already developed by
the Transducens group at the Universitat d'Alacant, such as
interNOSTRUM (Spanish-Catalan, http://www.internostrum.com/welcome.php)
and Traductor Universia (Spanish-Portuguese,
It will be possible to use Apertium to build machine translation
systems for a variety of related-language pairs simply providing
the linguistic data needed in the right format.
