AI based translation software inaugurated by Bangladesh Supreme Court


February 20: The Bangladesh Supreme Court launched the Artificial Intelligence (AI) based translation software ‘Amar Vasha’ on February 18 through a virtual event. The software will translate orders and judgements of the Supreme Court from English to Bangla.
The Software has been developed with ‘EkStep’ foundation of India. It is based on their ‘Anuvaad’ translation software used in India to translate from English to Indian languages including Bangla. Anuvaad was deployed by the Supreme Court of India as SUVAS (Supreme Court Vidhik Anuvaad Software) from November 2019.
According to a press release issued by the High Commission of India in Dhaka, the High Commissioner said that this collaboration was possible as Bangla was one of the recognised languages of India. Moreover, the judicial systems of both countries have common origins, similar systems and lexicon.
