Chinese model from OPUS-MT

Link (en-zh, zh-eh): OPUS-models – Google Drive

Seems to perform better than the current model (OPUS model on top):

Input: When people don't see moose as potentially dangerous, they may approach too closely and put themselves at risk.

当人们不认为麋鹿有潜在危险时, 他们可能会靠近太近,把自己置于危险之中


When people don't think moose are potentially dangerous, they may get too close and put themselves in danger.


When people see them as potentially dangerous, they may come very close, putting them at risk.

Input: hello

This one made me giggle (like SALAD) :laughing:

The .argosmodel packages need a directory in the root of the zip archive.

For example, the zip archive on the left in this screenshot is correct:

With the current implementation of Argos Translate the model on the .argosmodel package on the right fails when you try to install it with this error:

The models work though!

The Urdu → English model doesn’t seem great but it’s useable. I tried to train an Urdu last year and there wasn’t very much data available.
