Hey Chris - I am up for building out on this one. Will take a look at your patch and give
it a whirl.

> The Joshua Decoder toolkit is a BSD licensed Java-based statistical machine translation
system hosted at Github:
> http://joshua-decoder.org/
> Joshua takes in corpuses and trains models that can then be used to do language translation.
Currently there is support for e.g., Spanisn->English, Indian dialects->English, Chinese->English,
and a few others. 
> https://github.com/joshua-decoder/joshua/
> It would be nice to build a Tika Translator on top of Joshua. There are of course several
issues with this:
> * the models are huge - so we'll need a separate package or Maven module, maybe tika-translate-joshua
or something to release the models and we'll need to build the models. I just went through
the process of building the Spanish->English one, and it still needs to be rebuilt b/c
I did it wrong, but it took over a day
> * there is a configuration for Joshua, and so we need some way of passing that config
into the Translator. Not sure of the best way to do this.
> * Joshua isn't in the Central repository. I've started a discussion on the Joshua lists
about this: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/joshua_support/9Y04miboUj0
> Anyhoo, I've got a working patch right now with hard code stuff, and a manual install
into my Maven repo for brave souls out there that want to try it.
