If you're looking to translate something, the most popular alternative is to simply use the main web site. But there are many alternative ways of getting Apertium translations.
- https://www.apertium.org/ is the official web site – it serves only the released (stable) versions of language pairs
- https://beta.apertium.org/ is the official "beta" site – it serves the latest work in all language pairs (so things may work better, but also may have weird bugs). You can also see some linguistic info (morphological analysis/generation)
- Apertium Simpleton UI is an app for Windows and Mac that lets you download the language data and use Apertium offline
Other sites running Apertium:
- https://gtweb.uit.no/mt/ and https://jorgal.uit.no/ are maintained by Norgga árktalaš universitehta and run the latest (unreleased) versions of pairs developed there (Sámi languages, Finnish, Estonian, …)
You can also translate directly from the command line on Linux and Mac (or Windows with WSL). Install the packages and try something like
echo "some words" | apertium eng-cat. This also supports document translation,
apertium -f docx eng-cat input.docx output.docx.
