Advanced ICT applications could help preserve linguistic diversity, a cornerstone of our multicultural European society.
Advanced ICT applications could be used to preserve Europe’s unique and essential cultural assets by enabling communication and collaboration across language boundaries. They can also help to secure equal access to information for people of different languages and support each language in the advancement of networked ICT. This session will investigate the role of language technologies (LT) in achieving these goals and discuss how best to position LT in a multilingual Europe with respect to text translation, software and content localisation and interactive systems. Researchers, commercial technology providers, private and corporate language technology users and language professionals will all add their voice to the discussion.
