The Balkan languages are those languages spoken in the Balkans, and possibly forming a part of the Balkan Sprachbund. They include Bulgarian, Macedonian, Romanian, Aromanian, Albanian, Greek, Serbo-Croatian, and a number of others.
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.
The ultimate goal is to have multi-purposable transducers for a variety of Balkan languages. These can then be paired for X→Y translation with the addition of a CG for language X and transfer rules / dictionary for the pair X→Y. Below is listed development progress for each language's transducers and dictionary pairs.
Once a transducer has ~80% coverage on a range of medium-large corpora we can say it is "working". Over 90% and it can be considered to be "production".
|Language||Module||Paradigms||Lemmata||Coverage (SETimes)||Coverage (Wikipedia)|
|Bulgarian||Macedonian and Bulgarian||305||7873||88.1%||77.15%|
|Macedonian||Macedonian and Bulgarian||225||8094||92.1%|
|Romanian||Spanish and Romanian||997||18719||89.7%||83.62%|
