- Provide High-Quality Texts — We are
committed to supporting as many languages as possible. To add support
for a new language, all that is needed is a sufficient amount of text
in the language with all special characters in place. Many of the
currently-supported languages were trained with only a small amount
of text—providing us with more will improve performance.
- Share Feedback — An easy way to provide us with
training text is directly through the Firefox
add-on. If Accentuate.us makes an error, correct the error, highlight the
text, right click, and choose "Submit Selection as Feedback...". Or, submit
any text at all, as long as you’re confident that the special characters are
correct—more is better!
- Improve Dictionaries — In addition to the
statistics gathered from training texts, Accentuate.us relies upon open
source spell checking dictionaries when restoring texts. Unfortunately,
less than 60% of our supported languages have open source spell
checkers, and some of these have poor coverage. Help us develop new
word lists, and improve the ones that exist.
- Translate the Interface — Because our
mission is to serve language communities around the world, we’ve taken
care to ensure all of our software is fully translatable. Contact us if
you’d like to translate Accentuate.us into your language. We host
translations on transifex.net.
- Host a Server — We are hosting over 100
languages on a small number of servers and response times can
occasionally be slow because of this. We can provide better service to
your language community if you’d be willing to run an instance of the
Accentuate.us server in your home country. Please contact us to make
- Donate or Sponsor — Although Accentuate.us
is free and open source software, it takes money to run. In order to
help us better support our large collection of languages and continue
to enhance user experience, you can donate.
