The European Commission has today announced the higher education institutions from all over Europe that will be part of the first “European Universities” alliances. They will enhance the quality and attractiveness of European higher education and boost cooperation between institutions, their students and staff.
Maltese civil servants now have the opportunity of using eTranslation, a cutting-edge machine translation tool developed and used by the European Commission (EC). The Commission, which has one of the largest translation services worldwide, including a Maltese department, developed this tool to enable its translators, who translate millions of pages a year, to work more efficiently. This new system uses neural artificial intelligence, and yields much better results than the previous one, which was based on statistical models.
A new call for tenders for translation services has been launched by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Translation (DG Translation) (see our Prior Information Notice for more details).
