Deployment of FLORES Machine Translation to Iloko WikipediaUrnosen
Apologies as this message is not in your native language Please help translate to your language.
The WMF Language team plans to introduce a machine translation (MT) support for the Content Translation in Iloko Wikipedia called FLORES. This means that you can choose to use FLORES machine translation when translating Wikipedia articles to Iloko using the Content Translation tool.
The FLORES Machine Translation is provided by an AI research team at Meta through a free for use API key that allows the Content Translation to access the service on the FLORES server for an evaluation trial period. This MT will be set as default in your Wikipedia, but you can choose not to use it by selecting "Start with empty paragraph" from the "Initial Translation" dropdown menu.
The Wikimedia Foundation has worked out an agreement that allows the use of FLORES without compromising Wikipedia’s policies about attribution of rights, your privacy as a user, and brand representation. You can find more information about the FLORES Machine translation on this page.
Please note that the use of the FLORES MT is not compulsory. However, we would want your community to:
- use it once it is deployed to improve the quality of the Machine Translation service
- provide feedback about our plans, its quality once deployed and ask any questions you might have about this addition.
We trust that introducing this MT is a good support to the Content Translations tool towards having better quality articles in Iloko Wikipedia.
