Tatoeba update (May 1st, 2010)

What's new

This update doesn't really bring any thing hugely new. The only new things are:
  • Icons (instead of text), for the "Inbox" and "Log out" link in the top menu.
  • Update of the Downloads page. The download files are now (officially) updated every week, and there's a new format.
The rest is bug fixes and optimization, so nothing really worth writing about.

Checking sentences

However, this update marks the beginning of an important phase in Tatoeba : massive correction and validation of sentences. We actually have the necessary features to do it, and in a way that is not just "random". This is all explained in my previous post on the reliability of the sentences.

We will start with French sentences. The primary goal is to correct the spelling and grammar mistakes by the end of May.

What's next

We will mostly revamp the lists section so that it can support in a better way the massive correction and validation of sentences.
