This new feature has been funded by Vicerectorat de Tecnologies de la Informació i de les Comunicacions from the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) and Servei de Promoció del Valencià from the Universitat d'Alacant (UA). By contributing this new format filter to Apertium, both UPV and UA are covering a big need of their own university communities and will be able to provide quicker and better linguistic support for them. And, at the same time, they are extending this opportunity to the whole scientific and educational world community, the most intensive users of LaTeX to create teaching material, scientific papers, presentations, posters, etc. For Apertium, it is another important step to ease the creation of multilingual content independently of the text format in which they've been written.
The Apertium LaTeX filter has been developed by Prompsit Language Enginneering, involving Sergio Ortiz Rojas and Boyan Ivanov Bonev. Their deep knowledge of both Apertium and LaTeX has been a key component to create the filter, a non trivial task due to the flexible nature of this format. The format filter covers the most of the standard commands and we will keep improving it. If you find a very frequent command which might deserve to be added, just tell us!
See you soon and enjoy translating you LaTeX files!
