AutoConvert is an intelligent Chinese Encoding converter. It uses built-in functions to judge the type of the input file's Chinese Encoding (such as GB/Big5/HZ), then converts the input file to any type of Chinese Encoding you want. You can use autoconvert to automatically convert incoming e-mail messages. It can also optionally handle the UNI/UTF7/UTF8 encoding.

Diqt is a WWW-based multilingual dictionary reference tool. That is, dictionaries of many languages can be searched using a web browser. Any language is available if you have its dictionary data. For example, you can search English-Japanese, English-German, English-French, and Japanese-English dictionaries at the same time.

GNU Edu allows you to browse documents written in another language, or in your own language but from another country. GNU Edu stores metadata for educational resources. These metadata are of two kinds:

  • common metadata for all kinds of documents
  • special metadata for educational resources
  • GNU Edu metadata conform to international standards

GNU Source-highlight Heckert gnu.small.png
Source-highlight reads source language specifications dynamically, thus it can be easily extended (without recompiling the sources) for handling new languages. It also reads output format specifications dynamically, and thus it can be easily extended (without recompiling the sources) for handling new output formats. The syntax for these specifications is quite easy (take a look at the manual). Source-highlight is a command line program, and it can also be used as a CGI. Notice that source-highlight can also be used as a formatter (i.e., without highlighting): you can, for instance, format a txt file in HTML (and it will take care of translating special characters, such as, <, >, &). Since version 2.2, source-highlight can also generate cross references; in order to do this it relies on GNU Ctags, These are the output formats already supported:

  • HTML
  • ANSI color escape sequences (you can use this feature with less)
  • DocBook

GNUnited Nations is a build system for translating the web site at It works via template files, which allow changes to be merged into individual translations of a page, from which the final HTML is generated. In effect, this helps to keep all translations of a page up-to-date.

See also the trans-coord organizational project.

ltchinese - A library of utilities for the Chinese language (pinyin, zhuyin, encodings, phonetics, etc.) from

MagicPO is a utility to automatically translate a gettext po-file from one language to another. It is useful for languages that are close to each other such as Norwegian Nynorsk and Norwegian Bokmål, and Norwegian Bokmål and Danish. It is also useful for automatically fixing common mistakes in files.

OmegaT is a free multiplatform (Java-SWING) Computer Aided Translation tool. OmegaT keeps a memory of the way you translate your text and can use memories of previous translations for reference. OmegaT is based on translation industry standards (TMX 1.4 etc) and supports a number of common formats including ODF (ISO/IEC 26300), legacy formats, HTML/XHTML, DocBook, plain text, Java bundle properties, monolingual .PO files etc. OmegaT is developed by translators for translators. Support and documentation are available in a number of languages.

Shipyard is a module to process data in a format inspired by email headers (RFC 2822). The goal of shipyard is to have a simple, human readable and human writable replacement for CSV that works better for long data and many rows and doesn’t need difficult escaping rules for special characters. It’s called shipyard because that word contains py and doesn’t seem to be taken yet.

Verbiste is a French conjugation system implemented as a C++ library, a GNOME applet, and two command-line tools. It can conjugate verbs and analyze conjugated verbs to determine their mode, tense, and person. The knowledge base contains over 6800 verbs.
