As a team we wanted to learn languages fast, without the hassle of using intensive external programs or paid programs. Our product provides an easy way for people to learn over 60+ languages by reading any online article avaliable so that people can learn in the way they want to, in a way that they will learn the essentials quickly.
What it does
Biling-URL takes the text from any webpage and over time, translates increasingly more words from English to the language of the user's choosing. Over a selected time frame, every time an article is accessed, our extension will take words and translate them into another language, increasing our users knowledge of the words from a firsthand experience.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are very proud that within this small amount of time we were able to become proficient at a new language we had never learned before and we were able to create a functioning web application that would be able to help others. As a team we accomplished something we did not believe possible, and created an application we view on par with other language-development software.
What we learned
What's next for Biling-URL
We hope to continue working on this project and create a faster and more efficient replacing algorithm in the future, and color code the replaced words so that people know which words have been altered. We also hope to track data collected in language proficiency and supply our users with updates about their progress into learning a new language.
