The languages of Central Asia include several Turkic and Iranian languages spoken in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, and Afghanistan. These include Kazakh, Kyrgyz, Uzbek, Turkmen, Tajik, Dari, Pashto, Uyghur, and Karakalpak.

The master plan involves generating independent finite-state transducers for each language, and then making individual dictionaries and transfer rules for every pair. The current status of these goals is listed below.
