On the eve of Sakha Republic Day, the Yakut language appeared in the Yandex translator. Now you can translate words and phrases from Yakut into 98 languages ​​and vice versa. The service is available on the site and in the mobile application.

As noted in the press service of the company, for the Yakut language there are few parallel texts for training a machine translator. In the republic, Yandex team was helped by enthusiasts who collected about 50 thousand phrases in Yakut and translated them into Russian.

The translator was developed in several stages: first, the service team trained the neural network using examples that it was possible to collect thanks to enthusiasts, then it enriched the resulting model with data from related languages, and in order to learn how to make competent sentences in Russian, the large corpus of Russian texts and the reverse translation technique were used.

They wanted to create such a translator since 2017. For the past year and a half, on a voluntary basis, Russian-Yakut texts have been collected. As noted by a researcher at the National Library of Yakutia Alexei Ivanov, who helped create the service, the quality of machine translation is close to human, but needs to be improved.
