Do you speak code_aster?

6 April 2017

The translation of the code_aster and Salome-Meca documentation in English is now updated daily.

A true encyclopedia of structural mechanics

The full documentation for code_aster and Salome-Meca is now available and updated daily in English:

  • more than 2000 documents,
  • 23000 pages,
  • four millions of words, the equivalent of a quarter of the Encyclopaedia of Diderot and D’Alembert.

The man to second the machine

English translation is produced with the latest version of SYSTRAN Enterprise Server, which has been specially trained with a corpus of 75 documents (1500 pages), resulting from a joint post-edition work of EDF Energy R&D UK Centre and EDF / R&D / ERMES, and enriched with a glossary of technical vocabulary.

The documentation is already available after each modification at this address:

This will facilitate the promotion and use of code_aster and Salome-Meca within EDF, particularly in centers in the UK and China, and externally.


The respect of the document style sheet is being improved and a better consideration of the translation memory is coming in 2017.
