Description

Hi, could be very useful to have an offline translator.
For example, I am not english and I have to comunicate in english with one who can help me because I am a whistle blower. I don't want use google translator or other online translator because it's pretty easy to intercept me, with tor too. Thus an offline translator could be useful.

History

#1 Updated by sajolida 4 months ago

Surprisingly, I discussed with a group of users last week-end who had a similar request.

I had a quick look at whether there would be Debian packages that could do that and couldn't find anything.

The closest I found is apertium but:

  • The package in Debian seems to be a command line tool, so not suitable for our target audience.
  • The online version, assuming that it produces the same results as the offline version, has pretty poor translation quality: https://www.apertium.org/

So unfortunately, I couldn't find a solution to your problem.

I propose to leave this ticket open some more time to see if someone else can identity a better option and otherwise I think we should reject this ticket for now.
