The free/open-source machine translation platform Apertium, originally created by the Transducens group, has been selected again as one of the projects supported by Google in their Google Summer of Code program. Students from around the world can now apply for one of the 5,000 USD grants for working for three months in one of the ideas proposed for the project (check the list of ideas here). Proposals and new ideas can be discused with the mentors in the IRC chanel #apertium in freenode.net or through the mail-list firstname.lastname@example.org. The next steps will be:
- From April 9 to April 21: discussion of the ideas with project developers.
- From April 22 to May 4: submission of proposals.
Interested students can contact with Mikel Forcada.
