/languages/ is a module of the SVN where monolingual language data lives. Monolingual language data in Apertium is slowly being moved to this new repository scheme. (Originally, all monolingual language data was found in language pairs, meaning that there was a lot of duplication.) If you feel something is missing, please feel free to contact us.

New monolingual packages should be developed in incubator until they're minimally useful, at which point they can go in /languages/. There is no fixed criterion for what constitutes a minimally-useful language package; generally, however, a language package should have over 60% coverage on a variety of corpora and should probably have at least 2500 stems to be considered minimally useful.

The /languages/ module can be found in svn at https://svn.code.sf.net/p/apertium/svn/languages .

[edit] Language family pages

Language family pages exist to show the overall progress of monolingual language modules for regions and language families of interest. Currently the following pages are (or should soon be) available on this wiki (family names in bold use the format described below):

The language family pages should represent the following data in a standardised format:

  • The languages of that group with apertium data (whether in languages, incubator, part of a pair in trunk, etc.)
  • 2- and 3-letter ISO codes for each language
  • The formalism the module is written in
  • Links to the pages for each language on the apertium wiki
  • The location in the apertium repository (whether in languages, incubator, part of a pair in trunk, etc.)
  • Development status, which should be one of the following:
    • production - for language modules used in a released pair, usually over 90% coverage and/or over 10,000 stems
    • working - for language modules with near-production-quality performance, usually over 80% coverage and/or over 8'000 stems
    • development - for language modules under development, usually over 60% coverage and/or over 1'000 stems
    • prototype - for language modules that have not received heavy development, usually less than 60% coverage or under 1'000 stems

Here are status guidelines summarised in a table:

status description stems coverage bidix table
prototype language module that has not received heavy development <1,000 <60%
development language module under development ≥1,000 ≥60%
working language module with near-production-quality performance ≥8,000 ≥80%
production language module used in a released pair ≥10,000 ≥90%


Additionally, the following data is put on apertium-xxx/stats pages, and is included on the language family page and other places as relevant:

  • The number of stems (and paradigms if relevant) in that language module
  • The coverage of the transducer on a variety of corpora

There should also be a table of language pairs available with these languages, with number of stems from apertium-xxx-yyy/stats pages on the wiki. Guidelines for font semantics for the pairs follow:

  • production / trunk = bold
  • working / staging = bold+italics
  • development / nursery = normal
  • prototype / incubator = italics

Optional information includes samples of a single text in these languages and UNESCO-provided vulnerability data.
