@dowodenum Thanks for the tip. A FOSS tool would be good. In the end it should become part of a translation workflow.

@xldrkp

Question for the .

I would like to translate an old meteorological book as a test case together with @xldrkp to see how the tools, starting with , perform.

A terrible case 🤡: a German book with long citations in French and Italian, many, many footnotes, figures, tables. If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere.

The publisher kindly send me a scan of the book. So I need good Software. What is your favorite OCR Tool?

@MediaFormat Welcome in the Fediverse.

Do you mean your plugin to show toots on your Wordpress blog? git.feneas.org/mediaformat/fed

We currently do that with the plugin Super RSS Reader. Would there be advantages in changing?

Du hast ein FOSS Projekt / App, wo ich mit übersetzen kann. dann erwähne einfach meinen account

You have a FOSS project / app where I can help translate. then just mention my account.

@christian_zerfass Deepl makes (nearly) perfect translations from Dutch to English. The languages are very close.

@vidak

Do you know by any chance freelance translators for Danish, Estonian, Latvian or Lithuanian? If so please contact me.

@Stoori Just wanted to use the term for a blog post and could not remember how the English call it, but I could remember you just wrote about it.

During a test I could often remember that the equation was on the bottom of page X of the textbook, but not the equation. I need a better memory system.

Maybe 2021 was not perfect, but we did get Translate Science off the ground. blog.translatescience.org/laun

🎉 Happy New Year!! 🍾

@openrisk @ashwinvis One of our members works on fluid dynamics and a lot of great work in his field is being ignored because it is in Russian.

The West produced and published a lot of translations. There were databases with these articles, but they have been closed down. We would like to revive them. wiki.translatescience.org/wiki

This was focussed on fields that benefited the West. Hard science were Russian excelled.
It is also in China's interest that people can read and build on their papers.

@Corina @Stoori I liked the UK Labour Party proposal that when a factory is to be shut down or sold, the workers would get the first option to buy to make it into a worker cooperative. The government would provide relatively cheap loans.

@dasaptaerwin Maybe your friend would have better ideas who to write to. I found the general email of the Chinese Academy of Science and the National Science library.

P.S. You send a DM, with the privacy settings below your post. Or chose DM in the menu of someone's profile.

As follow up on the story that China wants to write more scientific articles in Chinese: does anyone here know someone in China (at the Chinese Academy of Sciences?) who we could write to to lobby for translating these articles?

Hello it’s my #introduction. I’m new on Mastodon. I’m a hydrogeologist based in Indonesia, working at Institut Teknologi Bandung. I also support #openscience and make #sketchnote. :) here’s a Christmas present for all of you. My sketchnote from the book #TeachLikeFinland.

This looks cool. Wikitongues is documenting and trying to revitalize endangered languages.

I came across a documentary showing clay tablets used for writing long long ago. Now that we have Translate Science this made me wonder how they have been translated.

Does anyone here know how that is done?

If they have software/tools to find and make such translations would that be something we could adopt/adapt for translated scientific articles?

@cadadr I also recently warned a group that their RSS feed had not been working for about a year. Now it is back up.

Something that is not there does not attract much attention.
