Bengali Machine Translator

Anubadok is the name of the Bengali Machine Translator. The creators of this translator deserves applauds from everybody. They say it is a small attempt to bridge the digital divide -but infact it is a BIG STEP for Bengali language.

Anubadok is an open-source (GPL'ed) English to Bengali machine translator using Penn Treebank annotation system.

Anubadok system can be accessed online

Anubadok uses dictionary database from Ankur's English to Bengali dictionary project. Incidentally, Anubadok's initial database was used as seed contributions for the project.

This dictionary project since its inception, is being maintained by Golam Mortuza Hossain ( gmhossain at gmail.com ). If you are interested in helping this project then please feel free to write to the maintainer or Ankur mailing list ( core at bengalinux.org ).

This English to Bengali dictionary is run by Ankur, an internet-based voluntary organization where anyone can join/contribute/leave as they wish. This group is working towards supporting Bangla (Bengali) language on GNU/Linux operating system. Some of its projects are in fact platform independent and add supports to other operating systems.
