Sanzang is a compact and simple cross-platform machine translation system. It is especially useful for translating from the CJK languages (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean), and it is very suitable for working with ancient and otherwise difficult texts. Unlike most other machine translation systems, Sanzang is small and approachable. Any user can develop his or her own translation rules, and these rules are simply stored in a text file and applied at runtime.

You can now use a Web interface to Sanzang to try its translation method. This is called "Sanzang on the Web," and it is configured to use an early...
Release Notes: I/O exception handling now reports the full error message regardless of the situation. Processor counting was also updated for accuracy on Windows platforms.
Release Notes: This is mostly a bugfix release, with the main item being handling of error reporting when a file descriptor is nil, or when a file cannot be written to. The build process has also overgone an overhaul for greater clarity and portability.
Release Notes: JRuby support has been added, including fast batch processing with Java threads. Translation tables now load more quickly, which is beneficial especially when translating a single file or text stream.
Release Notes: Translations are now buffered, so translation now uses a very limited amount of memory and also gets a performance boost. Platform support has been greatly improved, with multiprocessing support added for many Unix and Unix-like systems including AIX, HP-UX, IRIX, Tru64, various BSDs, Minix, and others. Usage and platform display output now has better formatting.
Release Notes: Fixes for portability and for working in terminals defaulting to ASCII (e.g. FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and NetBSD). Terminals using ASCII encodings and IBM DOS "code pages" will now default to UTF-8 as the text encoding for data. There were minor enhancements for error reporting and portability.
