Welcome to

The European Digital Single Market, one of the main goals of Europe 2020, is still fragmented due to language barriers. European society is multilingual, the diversity of its cultural heritage is an opportunity, but hampers transborder eCommerce, social communication and exchange of (cultural) content. Languages without sufficient technological support will become marginalised. These barriers must be overcome by language technology (LT) like Machine Translation (MT) solutions, a need recognized by the future Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). To support these endeavours to reach an online EU internal market free of language barriers, it is necessary to join, benchmark the quality and facilitate the access to language resources.

Moreover, you can now visit LT Observe, the platform for practical information on language resources and EU policies for the multilingual Digital Single Market. The platform for practical information on language resources and EU, national and regional policies and strategies for the multilingual Digital Single Market.
