Recently have been busy with my open source project http://sourceforge.net/projects/jab4trans today released version 0.1 of it.
I called it jab4trans based on the popular nomeclature thats being followed in the java world like jab4log :). The name itself is self explanatory "jab4trans" i.e. "jabber for translation". An attempt to extended the jabber protcol to translate language text. The first question that comes up which two languages are being considered for it ... I assumed two fictious languages "UPPER" and "lower" and tried converting them vice versa. May be if someone has made open source / licensed tool for language translation pls allow me to use it or any pointers to same will be higjly apreciated.
The major concerns here are ...
1. Writing server - i havent written a robust or secure server or a server that can handle thousands of clients just a plain server in its simplest form that waits for incoming connections and handles them.
2 Implemnting Jabber protocol - Jabber protocol handels thre types of packet
3. Converting the chat packets - converted packets from UPPER to lower and vice versa using an extra
4. Two languages for translation - As said earlier have used two fictious languages "UPPER" and "lower" looking forward to use some APIs for same that implies i will have to use a different encoding for xml packets ... lets see how much succesful i will be for same. I tried google language tools but it seems as if they are not relased as APIs for third party developers .. pls correct me if i am wrong !!
I kept the version as 0.1 coz i feel its a "proof of concept" code and not even close for 1.0 release need to atleast implement the point number 2 and 3 mentioned fully ... Its still ininfancy i would say.
Bug -> No software complete without a BUG he he he... just kidding had less time so released it with a know bug ... the packets to be translated are being added "twice" as of now .. and converted twice too ... need to rectify it asap
Wat Say ??
