    Description

    The machine translation platform (PLATA) was designed to be integrated into the web portals of public administrations.

    It makes rough translations of integrated web portals so that their contents are transparent to citizens or full, edited translations that can be added to content management systems in the portals connected to the platform.

    PLATA is based on open-source machine translation engines like Moses or Apertium, translating texts in Spanish into the other official languages in Spainor into English, French and Portuguese.

    Translations into Catalan, Valencian, Galician, Portuguese and French are made with Apertium (rule-based translation), whereas translations into Basque or English are made with Moses (statistical translation).

    The translation process is fully automated; no human translators make or review the translations. Translation quality varies according to the target language within the thresholds of current machine translation technology.
