I trained a new trial model for Italian (20230820) and compared it to the current production model (1.0).
I think that the biggest difference between these models is that 1.0 uses data from CCMatrix and ParaCrawl, which are large but lower quality datasets, and 20230820 does not. 20230820 only uses the data in the commit above so it’s a smaller but, I think, higher quality dataset.
To me the two models seem to have similar quality translations at least in this example. I don’t speak Italian and I think I can completely understand the text from either of the translations.

Gli studi di Jane Goodall hanno dimostrato l’esistenza di una vera e propria cultura nelle comunità di scimpanzé della Tanzania, analoga a quella dei primi appartenenti al genere Homo e Australopithecus. Questi studi hanno consentito di chiarire le differenze fra scimpanzé e bonobo e di identificare entrambe le specie come ominidi (insieme ai gorilla), a differenza dell’orango (primate appartenente ai pongidi); la Goodall è stata fra gli ideatori del Progetto Grandi Scimmie Antropomorfe che mira a ottenere, per i grandi primati, un certo numero di diritti fondamentali riconosciuti a livello internazionale all’uomo, quali il diritto alla vita, alla protezione della libertà individuale e alla protezione dalla tortura. Ha inoltre evidenziato la scoperta dell’uso di utensili da parte degli scimpanzé: la studiosa, infatti, ha scoperto che questi animali sono soliti utilizzare, ad esempio, degli stecchini per “pescare” le termiti all’interno dei loro nidi, le larve e i galagoni dalle cavità dei tronchi d’albero o il miele dagli alveari, o ancora l’utilizzo di pietre per rompere i gusci dei semi più duri.
Studi recenti hanno dimostrato che gli scimpanzé hanno la consapevolezza della morte degli altri individui, non solamente come accade in altri animali molto intelligenti, che spesso appaiono depressi o provano vero dispiacere per la morte di un compagno, di un cucciolo o di un umano (se addomesticati), ma come vera capacità di astrazione e autocoscienza, dimostrata anche dai comportamenti ritualistici documentati. Essi hanno inoltre una morale di gruppo, talvolta comportamenti negativi - come “fare la guerra”, organizzati in piccoli “eserciti” o “bande”, composti dal clan famigliare o dal branco che divengono così una tribù; talvolta indulgere al cannibalismo di membri estranei al gruppo appena uccisi, se particolarmente affamati - del tutto analoghi a quelli umani e ben distinti da quelli di altri animali gregari.
Jane Goodall’s studies have demonstrated the existence of a true culture in the communities of chimpanzees of Tanzania, similar to that of the first belonging to the genus Homo and Australopithecus. These studies have made it possible to clarify the differences between chimpanzees and bonobos and to identify both species as hominids (together with gorillas), unlike the orngo (primate belonging to the pongids); Goodall was among the creators of the Great Anthropomorphic Monkeys Project, which aims to obtain, for the great primates, a number of fundamental rights internationally recognized to man, such as the right to life, the protection of individual freedom and the protection of torture. He also highlighted the discovery of the use of tools by chimpanzees: the scholar, in fact, found that these animals are used, for example, to use stecchini to “weave” the termites within their nests, the larvae and the galagons from the cavities of the trunks of tree or honey from the hives, or even the use of stones to break the shells of the harshest seeds.
Recent studies have shown that chimpanzees have the awareness of the death of other individuals, not only as it happens in other very intelligent animals, which often appear depressed or feel real sorry for the death of a companion, a puppy or a human (if adomesticated), but as a true ability to abstraction and self-consciousness, also demonstrated by documented ritualistic behaviors. They also have a group morale, sometimes negative behaviors - like “make war”, organized in small “exercises” or “bands”, composed by the family clan or the pack that thus become a tribe; sometimes indulge in the cannibalism of foreign members to the newly killed group, if particularly hungry - quite similar to those humans and well distinguished from those of other gregarious animals.

Recent studies have shown that chimpanzees are aware of the death of other individuals, not only as is the case in other very intelligent animals, who often seem depressed or feel sorry for the death of a partner, a puppy or a human (if domesticated), but as a true abstraction and self-consumption capability, also demonstrated by documented ritualistic behaviors. They also have group morals, sometimes negative behaviors, such as “warfare,” organized in small “exarchs” or “bands”, composed of the family clan or the pack that thus become a tribe. Sometimes to indulge in the cannibalism of members outside the newly killed group, if particularly hungry, who are completely similar to humans and well distinguished from those of other Greek animals.
