Sick and tired of relying on using Google Translate/DeepL/SYSTRAN/$$$Corp for language translation? It's time to build the free software alternative! Read my brain dump on we.lurk.org/hyperkitty/list/hb if that sounds interesting. Help Needed! :anarchistflagblack: :yayblob: :anarchistflagblack:

@decentral1se which free software is going to pay for the massive datacentres and the access to huge machine learning corpora and trained RNNs that make language translation anything other than laughable shit?

@xeb @decentral1se you don't know how far we can get unless we try.

Also if it can be done distributedly somehow probably desktops can come pretty close?
