Ideas for Google Summer of Code/Apertium website improvements

From Apertium
Jump to: navigation, search

The Apertium translation website is pretty cool, but we can make it even cooler. This project consists of various website (and API) improvement tasks.


[edit] Tasks

The website consists of two pieces: the front-end, html-tools, ( and the back-end API ( called APy. Some tasks follow and a full listing can be found on the project pages: and

  • Add "dictionary lookup" mode for single-word translations.
    • Should give synonyms and alternative translations.
    • It should rank the translations by likelihood.
  • Add a mode that colours the resulting translation depending on how reliable it is.
    • One possibility would be for language pairs to have different colours depending on WER or something.
  • Make language detection work properly and do "did you mean" style if people choose an unlikely source language.

[edit] Work in progress

Past GCI/GSoC have generated some work that just needs some polishing (e.g. last [GSoC]('16_Kira's_results._Apertium_website_improvements)). These are summarized on the project page and a few are included below.

[edit] Coding challenges

  1. Install the Apertium website with some language pairs on a server under your control, test that it works correctly. This means installing both APy and Html-tools.
  2. Check out the list of coding challenges found within and
  3. Send us a pull request with your code.
