Open Source Licenses

SlateMT uses a collection of software components written by many authors and contributors, on many different projects. We distributed these components under their respective open source licenses. They, in turn, can have parts that come from different sources and/or are licensed differently. The source code and licensing for these are at these links:

* slatetoolkit (scripts under AGPL v3, plus files from Moses and MGIZA++)
* moses (mostly LGPL v2.1 or later)
* MGIZA++ (mostly GPL v2 or later)
* European Parliament corpus (public domain)
* GNU sort.exe, split.exe, gzip and bzip* (various LGPL/GPL)

Where the license is listed as “…or later,” you have permission to redistribute under that license version or, at your option, later versions of that same license.
