  Package name    : apertium
  Version         : 0.8.1

  Description     : Machine translation engine for related languages

 Apertium is an open-source shallow-transfer machine translation engine,
 initially aimed at related-language pairs.
 It uses finite-state transducers for lexical processing, hidden Markov models
 for part-of-speech tagging, and finite-state based chunking for structural
 The system is largely based upon systems already developed by the Transducens
 group at the Universitat d'Alacant, such as interNOSTRUM (Spanish-Catalan,
 http://www.internostrum.com/welcome.php) and Traductor Universia
 (Spanish-Portuguese, http://traductor.universia.net).
 It will be possible to use Apertium to build machine translation systems for
 a variety of related-language pairs simply providing the linguistic data needed in
 the right format.
 There is a non-free package (apertium-ca-es) that provides the data needed to
 translate between Spanish and Catalan.
