As part of the Abu-MaTran project consortium (http://www.abumatran.eu), Prompsit is proud to announce the release of a web-based machine translation system between English and Croatian. To the best of our knowledge, the Abu-MaTran system is the first translator for these languages based on free/open-source technologies. The tool will help to reduce the time and costs associated with translation between English and Croatian, which yesterday became the 24th language of the EU.
The system will serve as a useful and functional tool to aid translation between English and Croatian. It is a baseline system that demonstrates the performance that can be achieved by assembling current state-of-the art technologies and data. During the remaining 3.5 years of the project, the consortium partners will work to improve the system by incorporating pioneering research technologies, high-quality domain-adapted data as well as extending the system to related languages.
