Translate All The Things!

An Introduction to LibreTranslate

Natural language translation is an automated process in which text from one language (e.g. English) is translated to another (e.g. French). In this talk we introduce LibreTranslate, a FOSS package that combines state-of-the-art natural language processing algorithms, pre-trained language models and a simple RESTful API.

LibreTranslate enables the addition of automated translation logic to third party applications and offers a FOSS alternative to proprietary translation services such as Google Translate or Yandex Translate. You can run it from your laptop, too! No data-center scale servers required.
