We are translating MS-COCO Captions to Amharic. This will solve two problems:
We get image captions in Amharic, useful to train a Amharic image-captioning AI. This is an artificial intelligence that is capable of describing an image you give it. We want to build a dataset that will enable students and researchers to build such AI models for Amharic, whenever they want.
We get sentences translated to Amharic. This will provide us with what AI researchers called 'aligned sentences'. This is very important for certain methods of English-Amharic translation, and is often useful for building an AI that can translate from English to Amharic.
