Improving support for non-standard text input

by Akshay Minocha (ksnmi) for Apertium

In the current trend non-standard language usage is more common on platforms like IRC, Twitter, Youtube, forums, etc. We want to translate this data to our desired language, hence spreading the message. Sadly even a little inconsistency in the data can make the Machine translation go wrong in various ways. This project aims to convert data into a standard text which can be accurately translated using the MT systems of Apertium.
