IIIT-Hyderabad develops machine translation system for Indian languages

By Syed Akbar
Hyderabad, Aug 15: Thanks to Sampark, a machine translation system developed by the city-based International Institute of Information Technology, translating Indian languages is now just a mouse click away.
To be made available to the public in September, the machine translation system is devised to translate Indian languages online.
When fully operational, the system can translate English scripts to as many as 18 Indian languages and vice-versa.
Initially, however, the new software will support only six languages. Later, 12 more will be added to the system in the second phase.
According to Professor Rajiv Sangal, director IIIT-Hyderabad, Sampark, developed by a consortium of 11 institutions led by IIIT, offers translation of Indian languages unlike Google which focuses mainly on English.
