Why are you interested in machine translation ?

Machine translation can be thought of as one of the greatest challenges in natural language processing. It is the single most useful application of NLP and building a good MT system requires a blend of numerous different techniques from both computer science and linguistics.

Why is it that you are interested in the Apertium project?

Apertium is a great project. It is obvious that a ton of work has been put into both developing the platform and creating the language resources. However, there is always more work to be done and being a part of this project is a perfect opportunity to make a big contribution to society.

Which of the published tasks are you interested in? What do you plan to do?

I'm interested in building a Corpus-based lexicalised feature transfer module which will set tags based on a corpus-generated model.
