TRADIKTE - Haitian Creole (krey˛l ayisyen) Translator

Welcome to the First Haitian Creole Translator Widget for Nokia S60 mobile phones. This is also the First Mobile App using Google's Haitian Creole Translation technology which was added in February 2010. Parallel data was provided by Carnegie Mellon University, and on which Google's system was trained. TRADIKTE, in Haitian Creole, means 'Translator'. The current beta version supports one-way, online-only translation from the input Creole text into English, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish. Future versions will see inclusion of more languages and offline translation capabilities.

With a Haitian Creole translator app for iPhone and Android - Tradui - already developed, the idea for developing one for Nokia phones was brought up by Kiran Vaka and Stephan Branczyk at the CrisisCamp Haiti Silicon Valley event organized at Yahoo! headquarters in Sunnyvale, California on 23rd Jan 2010. Intially working towards a Symbian C++ app which uses an offline dictionary, with the release of the Google Haitian Creole translation a week after the event, it was decided to use that instead for this release.

"Haitian Creole language (krey˛l ayisyen), often called simply Creole or Krey˛l, is a language spoken in Haiti by about eight million people, which is about 80% of the entire population of some ten million, and via emigration, by about one million speakers residing in the Bahamas, Cuba, Canada, Cayman Islands, Dominican Republic, French Guiana, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Belize, Puerto Rico, and United States. The language is notable for being the most widely spoken creole language in the world." - Wikipedia
