I was looking for russian-english parallel corpus, but have found none publicly available to the moment. If you know one, or parallel text database, I would be very grateful for one. (I heard of parallel corpus for news, but haven't found any).
For the moment I am exploring another idea to build such a corpus. Given that many wikipedia articles in Russian are translated/shortened/abridged versions of English ones and wiki texts are moreless free to use, I would like to do the following thing:
- Auto-translate EN->RU original articles.
- Use semantics-aware algorithm to try to align original text to russian wiki page.
- Maybe include some manual adjustments.
Does the idea looks realistic to implement? Has anyone tried anything like that?
