ACL ID P10-4012
Title Tools for Multilingual Grammar-Based Translation on the Web
Venue Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics
Session System Demonstration
Year 2010

This is a system demo for a set of tools for translating texts between multiple languages in real time with high quality. The translation works on restricted languages, and is based on semantic interlinguas. The underlying model is GF (Grammatical Framework), which is an open-source toolkit for multilingual grammar implementations. The demo will cover up to 20 parallel languages. Two related sets of tools are presented: gram- marian’s tools helping to build translators for new domains and languages, and translator’s tools helping to translate documents.
