Wikimedia’s ContentTranslation tool helped translating more than 3,00,000 articles since 2015 which helped narrowing gap between big and small Wikipedias. This talk is about how Debian packaging of Apertium Machine Translation played key role in it and how we can improve current Machine Translation packaging in Debian. Talk isn’t technical but contains some thoughts on packaging as background.
