Tweeslate.com is our attempt at translating a few selected sources on Twitter. For now, we follow a few sources from Ukraine, tweeting in English, Ukrainian or Russian, and we translate the tweets into Czech.
The informal and brief style of tweets, as well as the domain differences render machine translation (MT) of tweets very difficult. Our Moses-based MT systems could greatly benefit from a collection of human translations for this type of text. We thus designed Tweeslate.com primarily as an infrastructure for manual translation of tweets and (so far manual) selection of best candidate translations.
Visit Tweeslate.com and join our team of translators or contact us directly, if you wish to tweeslate a different set of sources, tweeslate the whole Twitter or help us in adapting MT for this challenging content.
