Language Technologies - project information

Article
The European Digital Single market is still very much hampered by language barriers. While much has been done in this area, further research is needed to develop technologies that meet the real needs of the language industry.

Language technologies however are not just about machine translation but about extracting meaning from data, turning it into useful knowledge. Tools and services to analyse  both structured (text, documents) and unstructured data (human speech, social media content) are required in order to fully exploit the huge quantities of data available.  Funding research in this area will help advance progress.  The full range of topics covered are:

  • automated translation,
  • multilingual content authoring and management,
  • speech technology and interactive services,
  • content analytics,
  • language resources, and
  • collaborative platforms.
