      Hi FinnickTheCrab,

      The machine translation systems I work on aim to help people translate between different languages. But, unlike google translate, I focus on very specific use-cases. For example, I worked on a system to translate between a human speaking French and a robot “understanding” English.

      Now I am working on a project to help Deaf people and hearing people understand each other without the hearing people knowing sign language.
