The objective of the project is to develop artificial intelligence (AI) based Estonian-Latvian machine translation toolkit EstLat Translator by a combination of Tilde’s (LV) state-of-the-art machine translation technologies and Avatar’s (EE) extensive data pool and translation expertise.
The new toolkit will address the market need for an efficient cross-border communication solution and will create new cross-border business opportunities for both partners. Both public and private entities will benefit from an Estonian-Latvian-Estonian machine translation service. It will provide both project partners with a unique product to expand their businesses and seize new market opportunities.
Main activities will be implemented through three work packages:
- Analysis and specification, which will result in user requirement analysis, functional specification, and the technical specification.
- Development of the EstLat Translator - core activity of the project, which will include preparing data, developing the neural machine translation systems, development of the EstLat Translator, and piloting.
- Marketing and sales planning includes defining the value proposition and pricing of the EstLat Translator, as well as client segmentation and marketing communication and product sales planning.
