CLARIAH Lunch Lecture: Patterns in Translation

Event details

12:00 - 13:00
Online through Zoom

The Peshitta, the Syriac translation of the Hebrew Bible, has been well-studied in traditional scholarship. Nevertheless, it still remains under explored from a computational perspective. Digitization methods of the ETCBC have made it possible to open this text up for machine translation scrutiny.

In this lunch lecture, Mathias Coeckelbergs will summarize the findings for the PaTraCoSy project (PAtterns in TRAnslation: Using COlibri Core for the SYriac Bible). The overall goal of this project is to use the Colibri Core environment to detect translation patterns between the Hebrew Bible and the Peshitta, its Syriac translation, thus providing a follow-up of the CLARIAH research pilot Linking Syriac Data.
