Is there an open-source English sentence database similar to Tatoeba?

Mozilla's Common Voice is similar in collecting sentences and recordings thereof. It does not have the translation aspect of Tatoeba.

See https://commonvoice.mozilla.org/

I recently discovered that the Nuer language has been added to Google Translate, and I was thrilled to contribute, as I have always looked forward to this astonishing news. I have a passion for the Nuer language and have spoken it since birth. I can write, read, and speak Nuer fluently.

Yes, I've noticed that too! Also, I appreciate all the contributions that you've done on Tatoeba. I love languages, and I just thought I'd show you my appreciation for contributing sentences in Nuer. :) I enjoyed reading your story about your passion for Nuer.

I recently discovered that Tamazight has been added to Google Translate. I'm wondering: did they use the incredible amount of Tamazight sentences here on Tatoeba?
If that's the case, I congratulate all of the Tamazight contributors on here.
If not, I wonder what data they trained their algorithm on.

Yes, Google Translate added what it called "tamazight" and used the both Tatoeba corpus (ber and kab), but in reality it is 99% Kabyle, which is why it poses a problem for its use, moreover Moroccans have already complained to Google, because the word Tamazight normally includes several North African languages ​​including Algerian and Moroccan languages, and not just Kabyle.

@samir_t Interesting. If it's not too much work, could you give me an example where Google Translate gives you a Kabyle sentence instead of ''standard Tamazight''?

Yes, here are examples:

https://tatoeba.org/fr/sentences/show/12559103

Look at the Kabyle translation of each sentence in English, then enter it into Google translations for translation into "Tamazight", and compare: it gives the same Kabyle sentence. It actually only translates into Kabyle even though the name of the language is "Tamazight".

Ce que vient de faire Google est une révolution pour notre langue amazighe. Le projet est ouvert à tout le monde, y compris les Marocains. D'ailleurs plusieurs amazighophones marocains y ont participé (et participent ici sur Tatoeba) et tout le monde est le bien venu pour participer au développement de la traduction automatique amazighe aussi bien sur Tatoeba. Tanemmirt (merci), doemaar14 pour ton message de félicitation.
