NAME
     apertium -- machine translation application platform

SYNOPSIS
     apertium [-au] [-d	datadir] [-f format] language-pair [infile [outfile]]

DESCRIPTION
     apertium is the application that most people will be using	as it simpli-
     fies the use of apertium/lt-toolbox tools for machine translation pur-
     poses.

     This tool tries to	ease the use of	lt-toolbox (which contains all the
     lexical processing	modules	and tools) and apertium	(which contains	the
     rest of the engine) by providing a	unique front-end to the	end-user.

     The different modules behind the apertium machine translation architec-
     ture are in order:

     de-formatter
	     Separates the text	to be translated from the format information.

     morphological-analyser
	     Tokenizes the text	in surface forms.

     part-of-speech tagger
	     Chooses one surface forms among homographs.

     lexical transfer module
	     Reads each	source-language	lexical	form and delivers a corre-
	     sponding target-language lexical form.

     structural	transfer module
	     Detects fixed-length patterns of lexical forms (chunks or
	     phrases) needing special processing due to	grammatical diver-
	     gences between the	two languages and performs the corresponding
	     transformations.

     morphological generator
	     Delivers a	target-language	surface	form for each target-language
	     lexical form, by suitably inflecting it.

     post-generator
	     Performs orthographical operations	such as	contractions and apos-
	     trophations.

     re-formatter
	     Restores the format information encapsulated by the de-formatter
	     into the translated text and removes the encapsulation sequences
	     used to protect certain characters	in the source text.

OPTIONS
     -d	datadir
	     The directory holding the linguistic data.	 By default it will
	     use the expected installation path.

     language-pair
	     The language pair:	LANG1-LANG2 (for instance "es-ca" or "ca-es").

     -f	format
	     Specifies the format of the input and output files	which can have
	     these values:

	     txt     (default value) Input and output files are	in text	for-
		     mat.

	     html    Input and output files are	in "html" format.  This	"html"
		     is	the one	accepted by the	vast majority of web browsers.

	     html-noent
		     Input and output files are	in "html" format, but preserv-
		     ing native	encoding characters rather than	using HTML
		     text entities.

	     rtf     Input and output files are	in "rtf" format.  The accepted
		     "rtf" is the one generated	by Microsoft WordPad and Mi-
		     crosoft Office up to and including	Office 97.

     -u	     Disable marking of	unknown	words with the `*' character.

     -a	     Enable marking of disambiguated words with	the `='	character.

FILES
     These are the two files that can be used with this	command:

     -m	memory.tmx
	     use a translation memory to recycle translations

     -o	direction
	     translation direction using the translation memory, by default
	     "direction" is used instead

     -l	     lists the available translation directions	and exits direction
	     typically,	LANG1-LANG2, but see modes.xml in language data

     infile  Input file	(stdin by default).

     outfile
	     Output file (stdout by default).
