I started posting it about a month ago. I haven't really worked on it very much since then, but in the last month I've added:
When I first started, I wrote the actual game part of it in a day or so. I then just improved on that adding more features and adding quality of life changes to it. It was probably a month or two of on and off progress. There's also a lot of stuff that isn't seen very obviously to users.
I didn't have to actually create the models to get the translations, as I use Google's for that. That's where the only cost comes from in creating translations. (Though, luckily, I received credits so I didn't have to pay for that so far for the books that have translations)
When I think about the amount of time taken to complete it, I feel like I should have been able to add more, I just didn't dedicate enough time to it all at once.

I’ve written programs in Java, C#, C++/C, and python. I like Java very much, but that’s mostly because when I was younger I tried to develop stuff related to game servers with it.

It doesn’t exactly match up in the sentence below. I run a translation of the full sentence, and a translation of the individual word.
The word is usually one of multiple options and isn’t always correct. Sometimes languages exclude words too. The sentence translations are usually better because the machine learning model has more to work with to determine a translation, but it’s not always perfect either.
In the future, I might add the ability for users to give feedback on translations. I might also create better dictionaries for the words, so that if one is obviously wrong, it’ll give the user the option to see the others.

Yes. Though, I haven't really traveled anywhere lately. I also haven't been outside of the United States since I was really young.

All of the books and translations that are added can be downloaded here. Though, they’re really not in a format that is going to provide the best reading experience. (you can open one of the books with a text editor to see what I mean)
I haven’t really checked what the standard format is for bilingual books. Though, I could probably quickly write something to just be able to read them using that data offline if there was interest.
Anyone is able to add books/texts to the website. All books added are supposed to be public domain books.
