The European Commission is sponsoring the TAUS Machine Translation showcase at the Localization World conference. The conference runs from 4 to 6  June at the Convention Centre in Dublin.

The European Commission’s new machine translation system has been available since June 2013. It was built by the Directorate General for Translation (DGT) using Moses and the EU institutions’ translation memories, stored in the Euramis database.

     It is continuously improving through close collaboration with EC translators, and regular inclusion of their more recent translations. MT@EC will be the starting point for an "automated translation platform" to be funded by the Connecting Europe Facility in order to support multilingualism of other European digital service infrastructures.

    The TAUS Machine Translation Showcases are free half-day meetings held throughout 2014 to raise awareness about and promote the industry’s informed use of machine translation. A variety of engaging speakers will present case studies of their MT systems to give a broad and example-based overview of MT in 2014. The presenters will demonstrate their technologies and highlight the value and possibilities that these technologies offer end users across domains and languages. These presentations are geared toward both users and providers of MT solutions, and different customization and optimization techniques will be discussed in the question and answer portions of each showcase.
