20:25 Romaine: question: what can I/we do to stimulate a certain language pair to become available?
20:30 pginer: Language pairs supported by Apertium: http://wiki.apertium.org/wiki/List_of_language_pairs
20:32 Nikerabbit: phabricator ticket for article suggestions: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T96147
20:34 aharoni_: Romaine: to make a language pair available in ContentTranslation, just wait till the end of the month ;)
20:34 Romaine: ok
20:34 Nikerabbit: The stats page Santhosh is showing is https://test.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:ContentTranslationStats
20:34 aharoni_: Romaine: to make a language pair available in Apertium, you need to talk to the Apertium developers in the #apertium channel,
20:35 aharoni_: but generally, somebody needs to create a text file with a dictionary and a file with the description of translating grammatical rules,
20:35 aharoni_: apertium developers can give you more details about how to do it.
20:36 aharoni_: Romaine: It may sounds circular, but if a lot of articles will be translated manually between two languages, it will help developers of Apertium and other machine translation engines to create machine translation for these languages.
20:39 Romaine: aharoni_: thank you for the answers
20:40 Romaine: talking to Aprtium developers is a bit feeling myself falling in a depth I have too little background in
20:54 Nikerabbit: Our first version of the api to get list of published translations: https://ca.wikipedia.org/wiki/Especial:ApiSandbox#action=query&list=cxpublishedtranslations&format=json&from=en&to=es
