I started a new project today called sxs (short for “side-by-side”). It’s another translation tool, this one designed to help me read things like newspaper articles. The basic premise is that it takes the source text, splits it into sentences, and then displays each sentence with its translation immediately below it.
It’s largely functional now, with the glaring exception that it only translates to English. That’s on the hit-list, and it’s largely a matter of UI work.
My “sentence detection” algorithm is also pretty rudimentary, but I think I’ll finesse that as I use the program. It’s deficiencies haven’t really bothered me yet, so it may not get much more love.
You can get sxs here.
