LibreTexts Founder and Executive Director, Dr. Delmar Larsen, will outline recent efforts of leveraging the centralized corpus of OER textbooks hosted on the LibreTexts platform toward a greater global impact. He will discuss the implementation and impact of two approaches in building non-English language OER textbooks via modern machine translation algorithms. The key to these approaches is recognizing that while modern machine translation algorithms have developed significantly over the past few years and they are still 90-95% perfect, their implementation makes them far more useful to students than the alternative human implemented translation effort at 100% implemented at a limited scale and with significant costs.
