I’m planning to start the ‘English-Swahili’ language pair.
Why Google and Apertium should sponsor it?
How and who will benefit from this project
African languages are poorly represented in Apertium.
1. Installed Apertium tools 2. Bootstrapped a new ‘swa-eng’ pair. I decided not to use the already posted version because it lacked a lot of essential files. 3. Work in progress
