Translation technologies


Matxin is the first publicly available machine translation system that translates into Basque; it has been developed by the IXA group of the UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country and Elhuyar. It is a piece of free software published with a GNU GPL licence.


Opentrad is an open-code, machine translation system which can produce translations with over twenty language pairs. More and more companies and public institutions use Opentrad to translate texts and documents or browse the Internet in various languages. Other users avail themselves of it to offer the information on their personal web sites, company web sites, blogs, etc. in English, Spanish, Galician, Portuguese, Catalan, etc. Elhuyar’s Language and Technology Unit has worked on the project.
