Apertium nb2nn: machine translation between Norwegian Bokmål and Nynorsk

by Kevin Brubeck Unhammer for The Apertium Project

Norwegian has two written variants, Bokmål and Nynorsk. The Apertium translation pair for Bokmål-Nynorsk has many available resources (morphological dictionaries, CG tagger) but work is needed to make it a full-blown translation system. This involves expanding the dictionaries with closed class words and adjectives, making transfer rules for the structurally different noun phrases and improving coverage of the translation dictionaries.
