We are looking for a logo for Apertium. The one in the top-left corner is temporary.

Speak thru me
My logo suggestion. SVG is available, so scaling isn't a worry:
The logo represents two people facing each other - speaking through Apertium. The faded mirror reflection of "apertium" represents one language morphing into another. --Cabrilo 12:22, 16 August 2007 (BST)
Apertium's got balls
Another proposal of mine, with two font versions:
Same meaning and metaphor as the first one, the ball representing the "box" through which translation happens. --Cabrilo 12:29, 16 August 2007 (BST)
Doesn't really say anything, but the 'A' inside the circle is quite cool, and could be adapted for a more compact logo. The circle part could be done better, and I don't like the font much (was thinking of a more blocky / futurey one). - Francis Tyers 12:56, 16 August 2007 (BST)
- Apertium < Latin Apertum, open.
- the stylized sun has a stylized a/@, from apertium ;-)
Box, with different writing systems coming out, at the moment random, but they could spell out something, maybe Apertium? :) I think currently the box icon is non-free, but this could easily be replaced by someone with a modicum of artistic skill (that is, not me). The Apertium font could also be changed. - Francis Tyers 15:55, 19 August 2007 (BST)

Black & white
This is my preferred one. The blocks below can represent the translator structure, but it doesn't matter.
A variation with helvetica and an icon logo in the left.

This logo is what wikimedia does with a SVG.
This other is what I did with my computer.

Tower of Babel
Stylised tower of babel.

The one that sergio has second (with the red teeth), but instead of the teeth, the tower.
