Automatic translation for the Ewondo language


Automatic speech recognition for the Ewondo language


Ewondo is a local language of the central region of Cameroon with about 3 million speakers, it is part of the Bantu language group. There are very few resources (written or oral) available on Ewondo, which makes it difficult to process via neural approaches.
Yannick Yomie Nzeuhang exploits multilingual acoustic models to perform automatic speech recognition on Ewondo.

Martin Rodrigue Atangana Ongolo explores the methods and techniques used in the context of low ressources languages for machine translation from French to Ewondo.
