Technology

change

For the translator, a sequence-to-sequence model is used, consisting of several layers, each of which includes an encoder and a decoder. Previous versions of Lingvanex used LSTM or GRU (simple recurrent network), attention layers, etc. The current version uses the so-called transformer architecture, when additional self-attention layers are inserted to connect recurrent and convolution networks.

Lingvanex used United Nations and European Parliament documents and transcripts to gather linguistic data and proprietory tool Data Studio to train language models. Most of the translations between language pairs are made via conversion to English as mediary first and then pivot to target language.
