Tatoeba - a good way to learn languages and help people

Hi there, everyone!

First of all, I’d like to apologize. I’m still studying English, reading stuff, etc but for sure I’ll commit a mistake (or some mistakes). Please, do not be afraid to point them out on the comments

I’d like to share an awesome website with you all: Tatoeba - Collection of sentences and translations

What’s that for?

Tatoeba is a community in which people add sentences and translations in from into any language they know. So yes, there are English sentences, Italian sentences, Portuguese, French, Finnish, Luxembourgish, Rapa Nui, Arabic, Japanese… 380 languages and everyone can ask to support even more languages.
and more:

There are English sentences translated into Turkish, German, Russian, Kabyle, Romanian, Gronings… French sentences translated into Arabic, English, Polish, Belarusian, Central Dusun… Everything is possible

How is that “build” (created)?

By volunteers that add/translate sentences and proofread them. It means that if you post a sentence (or a translation), everyone is “watching out” it to make sure if it misses punctuation, if it doesn’t sound natural, if a verb is conjugated correctly, etc

How many sentences are out there?

As for today +8,100,000 sentences (and counting). People contribute every day.

Can I use those sentences (even sentences created from other members)?

You can even download them. For free! That’s the best part! It’s built to make sure that everyone will be able to use and reuse their data (you just may have to credit to Tatoeba and/or to the user who posted the sentence(s))

How to say “I love you.” in many sentences

That’s it. You can ask me anything you want. I hope to see you all in there :smiley:

This sounds like a very interesting website. I’ll give it a little look-see. I like the idea of community driven translations.
