My goal

I’m planning to start the ‘English-Swahili’ language pair.

Why Google and Apertium should sponsor it?

In progress

How and who will benefit from this project

African languages are poorly represented in Apertium.

Coding challenge

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
