Future plans, directions and ideas

See a separate document in plan/strat/5year.jspwiki.

Infrastructure

Børre has installed giza++, mosesdecoder, srilm, mkcl etc on the XServe, which will facilitate statistically based machine translation. There are experiments with the two ways of doing MT:

  • rule-based machine translation
    • based on apertium: sme2smj
    • based on cg?
  • statistical machine translation - ideas/plans for the future:
    • sme2smj (for comparison),
    • sme2nob (gist translation),
    • nob2sme (OpenOffice.org localisation etc.)

To accomodate future enhancements in different directions (in rough order of importance):

  1. test bench for all parts of our language technology efforts
    1. test bench enhanced, but not yet complet
  2. set up the Leopard Server features for collaborative support:
    1. permanent chat rooms
    2. stored (and indexed) chat transcripts of the chat rooms
    3. iCal server / group calendars
    4. wiki
  3. wiki? on G5 (is part of Leopard Server) or other web-based documentation
  4. improve Forrest stability and i18n support ( the divvun crashes)
    1. Sjur has been working on better i18n and pdf rendering
    2. Børre has some ideas for getting back to serving static html files
  5. reorganise the documentation:
    1. differ between target groups
    2. get better grouping
    3. decide what to write in forrest and what in wiki (cf. Apertium and http://xixona.dlsi.ua.es/apertium/) for a similar split)
    4. update/add missing parts
  6. migrate lexc lexicons to XML, splitting the task
    1. Name lexica (the Name project)
    2. Dictionaries (already in XML, task is to integrate them)
    3. At least migrate the lexc open POSes (Komi as a pilot case)
  7. change the look of the documentation web
  8. sfst?
    1. replacement for xfst -> see omorf , omorf wiki and omorfi
    2. replacement for hunspell/open-source proofing tools
  9. investigate the NSIS installer, potentially replacing the InstallShield package from Polderland
  10. corpus content moved to Max Planck repositories? Norsk språkbank?
  11. update infrastructure to allow content-restricted spellers for special target groups

SVN issues:

  • http access not yet available (https only at the moment, but it works as anonymous checkout if the user is not specified)
  • read access to the whole repo is working, BUT:
    • gt/*/polderland should be protected
    • plan should be protected
  • certain users need to be on the UiT VPN to be able to commit (bug #705)
  • UTF-8 problem in svn commit mails: the commit log text is garbled

SVN mail issue - solved.

TODO:

  • infrastructure remake: ( Børre, Ciprian, Saara, Sjur, Tomi, Trond)
    • more modularised make / build infra (prepare for smn, sms, sjd, others)
    • merge gt, kt and st into one
    • modularised preprocess and spellrelax
  • make a test-all target that runs all tests we have (Ciprian, Sjur, Trond)
    • delayed until we have restructured the make/build process
  • define and document testing routines (Ciprian, Sjur, Trond)
    • delayed until we have restructured the make/build process
  • follow-up migration to svn:
    • close the open SVN repository at requested paths (Ciprian)
      • completely closed at the moment, until we have solved the path-based control
    • prepare and discuss with external users: Jack Ruether (Trond)
  • test iCal Server (on G5) (Børre)
  • remove TOC from the giellatekno home page by using dispatcher (Trond)

  • Michael Rießler
  • Eino Koponen
  • Torbjörn Söder

Name lexicon/risten.no infrastructure

Instead of building our own webforms and back-end update scripts, use XForms with a premade connection to our xml db. Orbeon XForms is such a tool (open source).

From the meeting with the terminology and IT teams last week:

  • no major rework on the present search interface now
  • no work on the editing section; instead:
  • add existing lists of sanctioned terminology as separate term entities
  • add a dictionary if we can make one with sufficient quality

This means the following tasks:

  • find already approved lists, in paper or electronic form (term team)
  • convert paper lists to electronic lists (term team)
  • convert lists to standard XML (Sjur, Tomi)
  • add prepared lists to risten.no (Sjur, Tomi)

TODO:

  1. fix i18n bug in risten.no/G5 (so they will work without the proper locale request) (Sjur)
  2. fix bugs in lexc2xml; add comments to the log element (Saara)
  3. finish first version of the editing (Sjur)
  4. test editing of the xml files. If ok, then: ( Sjur, Thomas, Trond)
  5. make terms-smX.xml <=== automatically from propernoun-sme-lex.xml (add nob as well) (the morphological section should be kept intact, in e.g. propernoun-sme-morph.txt) (Sjur, Saara)
  6. convert propernoun-($lang)-lex.txt to a derived file from common xml files ( Sjur, Tomi, Saara)
  7. implement data synchronisation between risten.no and the cvs repo, and possibly other servers (ie the G5 as an alternative server to the public risten.no - it might be faster and better suited than the official one; also local installations could be treated the same way)
  8. start to use the xml file as source file
  9. clean terms-sme.xml such that all names have the correct tag for their use (e.g. @type=secondary) (Thomas, linguists)
  10. merge placenames which are errouneously in different entries: e.g. Helsinki, Helsingfors, Helsset (linguists)
  11. publish the name lexicon on risten.no (Sjur)
  12. add missing parallel names for placenames (linguists)
  13. add informative links between first names like Niillas and Nils ( linguists)

Dictionaries

Status: Ciprian has redone the makefile and the build process, generalized and standardised.

The scripts in gt/smX/testing/ should go to a more general and shared location.

The dictinary build command:

dicts$ make wordform_macdict S_LANG=sme T_LANG=nob

When will we have a Mac and PC dictionary to use and test? Wednesday.

Documentation (link below) must be written and translated, at least into Norwegian.

Tomcat, eXist are needed in order to make the dictionaries accessible on the web, as well as svn check-out and testing.

The www.divvun.no setup is appr 1 1/2 year old. The question is to what extent this setup will work with the present eXist version.

  • http: //giellatekno.uit.no/dict.eng.html
  • http: //www.divvun.no: 8889/index.html

TODO:

  • Set up the apache server for the risten.no beta on the linux box + Xserve. ( Børre)
  • set up Tomcat and eXist (latest svn) on XServe (Børre)
  • set up risten.no on eXist/XServe (as a beta version site) (Sjur)
  • set up required infra for smenob on risten.no/XServe (Sjur)
  • Continue the dictionary infrastructure discussion (Ciprian, Sjur, Trond)
  • end user documentation (how to download and install) (Ciprian, Trond)
  • make simple installer applications?
  • make a public release
    • Make a homepage with instructions for dictionary use: xtdoc/gtuit/src/documentation/content/xdocs/dict.eng.xml
    • Clarify the difference between local and online dictionaries:
      • Plugin for Firefox and Internet Explorer (online dictionaries)
  • Contact Davvi Girji about cooperation on electronic dictionaries ( Sjur)
  • short meeting to go through missing points before a release - Wednesday 13: 00 ( Ciprian, Sjur, Trond, Børre)

Proofing tools

Hunspell

Børre did some investigations on compounding syntax - it does not look good.

TODO:

  • work on and debug compounds (Børre, Thomas)

OpenXSpell

Working everywhere (almost) in MacOS X applications, provides Sámi spell checking system-wide through a hunspell back-end. OpenXSPell

There are two issues:

  • strings with non-ASCII chars are always flagged
  • asking for suggestions on words with non-ASCII chars crashes OpenXSpell

Another option could be CheckSpell. Seems to be more stable and developed. See http://web.mac.com/heidi17/Heidikowa_witryna/CheckSpell.html.

Testing

Spelling Error Markup

TODO:

  • Set up ways of adding meta-information (source info, used in testing or not, added to lexicon or not) (Saara)
  • test new and nested error markup (Sjur)
    • nesting still needs to be tested, depends on new ccat feature

Speller testing

TODO:

  • test the error type selection feature in ccat (Sjur)

Speller bugs

List of bugs returned from Polderland: 621, 630, 652, 656, 676.

Other

Sámi week in Tromsø

Antti Suni is coming => meetings with at least Biret Ánne, Trond and Patrik Bye and Ove Lorentz. On Friday there will be a university strategy seminar - should somebody go there?

Schedule:

  • Monday: 13.00 Library presentation (Trond)
  • Tuesday: 11.00 European Charter for regional languages will have a meeting ( Jovvset, Trond are going there
  • Thursday 14: 15: Release of Oahpa + dict + release party in Árdna, directly afterwards ( Biret Ánne, Ciprian, Lene, Saara, Trond)

Text to speech

Antti has hinted at the possibility of doing beta versions of other languages as well. We are thus now recording Greenlandic sentences. A further possibility would be smj, sma, this would require phon-smX.xfst files for these languages as well (a couple of days' work for smj, more for sma), plus recording.

TODO:

  • meeting with Antti Suni during the Sámi week ( Maja, Ove Lorentz, Thomas, Trond)

TNC, rikstermbanken and Sámi terms

  • Mekanihkartearbmat
  • Pedagogalaš ja psykologalaš tearbmat (?)

It should be ok, but they need to send a formal request, to samediggi@samediggi.no. From there it will be forwarded to the relevant person.

Corpus contracts + open source

Postponed until the svn repository is fully functional (it is too open now).

Other issues

  • svn mail not working for David -> Børre, Ciprian
  • Maja is still not receiving mail on her computer -> Børre
  • Maja would like to have a bigger monitor -> coming soon (it is ordered)
