What's New on Tatoeba? - Your weekly recap °5


※ Correct red warning icon position so it doesn't overlap with the copy icon. Thanks to gillux for reporting and Aiji for the correction.

※ Added an arrow on the side of sort criteria to indicate in what order sentences are displayed. This is the first step to a bigger redesign of the sort criteria. Expect more in the future :) Thanks to AlanF_US for reporting and AndiPersti for the implementation.

※ Following last week update about cleaning Unicode characters, sentences are now normalized in a better way. Sentences already in the corpus were also normalized. Thanks to CK and TRANG for noticing the problem and AndiPersti (on GitHub) for the fix.

※ Improved Pinyin transcriptions. Thanks to Yorwba for his work.

※ Improved the flow between Transifex and the dev website. Following the huge contributions in translating the U.I. the last few weeks, thank you all for that, some problems have been taken care of. Thanks to small_snow, Aiji, TRANG, AndiPersti, and gillux for their contribution at some point (if I forgot someone, my apologies!)


※ gillux asked a question about Mandarin Chinese and its automatic conversion.

※ sharptoothed gave use his usual Stats & Graphs :)

※ TRANG asked for help to test the new "Add to list" button functionality. A good step forward :)

※ Ricardo mentioned that our Transifex project now has five more languages: Interlingue, Klingon, Lithuanian, Norwegian Bokmal, Persian. That's awesome!

※ Ricardo also wrote a thank you post to all the people who helped us translate Tatoeba in so many languages :)

※ maaster was wondering about the new design of the user page.

※ Raizin asked how he could change the license of original sentences.


16 203 sentences added this week (from one export to another). You can check daily activity on this page


If you'd like to help to the development of Tatoeba, report issues, or are just curious, have a look at the GitHub repository:

If you're especially happy with one of the updates, don't hesitate to personally thank our developers :) They're working in the shadow but they'll be glad to hear your feedback.


Fun fact: Some languages have more than three genders. Masculine, feminine, neuter, animate, inanimate, etc. According to Wikipedia, Tuyuca, a language spoken by an ethnic group in South America, counts between 50 and 140 noun classes.
