Technologies in the project


Backend was written in Python2 with Flask micro-framework. All missed parts were additionally implemented. (e.g. Multithreading calls to different translators)


Frontend was written in JavaScript, mainly based on ECMAScript5 standard. Additionally, jQuery and AJAX were used. For a beatiful layout, buttons and webpage components Bootstrap3 was in use with a lot of tiny customizations.

It is the same name of the project. neurotõlge is Estonian word which means Neural Mahine Translation, while neuralmt is English abbreviation with the same sense.

Why are implementation of integrations with translation APIs empty?

Almost all text translation APIs are paid. Therefore, since we save our resources and unfortunately cannot share security keys with everyone we keep them private. In the meantime, there several translation APIs which have limited freedomness which are not yet implemented. Contributors of the project will be more than happy to add new integrations just let us know through issue tracking page. The same page will be used both for feature queries and issues tracking.
