KDE-Edu Meeting at Randa (Switzerland) 20th to 25th May 2010
Cooperation with Vox Humanitatis
Bèrto 'd Sèra and Sabine Emmy Eller from Vox Humanitais were invited at the meeting to extend our collaboration. An export of Ambaradan data into kvtml2 format was successfully created by Vox Humanitatis. This means that Parley and also other applications can retrieve the data from Ambaradan directly without "intermediate conversion". As test data we used Agrovoc by FAO. Parley was able to digest the huge file with 100.000 entries and still remained fast. The complete dataset for Agrovoc for now will consist of 56 language combinations. For the future this means that data can be acquired fast, directly from Ambaradan which also means that our contents creating team can concentrate on the terminology entries only without needing to think about manual data conversion. Further ways of co-operation with other KDE projects were discussed and we will come back to these points step by step (use of KLettres which teaches alphabet and has already several languages sounds for example).
