LTO will organise its Final Workshop at the event (Programme)
The Observatory for Language Resources (LR) and Machine Translation (MT) in Europe (http://www.lt-innovate.org/lt-observe) derives from the need expressed by multilingual solution providers (enterprises and researchers) to have better access to more usable language resources (LRs), together with the more general need to make available large amounts of content and data that are currently untapped due to language barriers, leading to a loss of economic opportunities. The LT-Observatory aims at making LRs more accessible to and usable by users of machine translation in public and commercial services. In parallel, LT strategies at national and regional level were investigated and funding sources identified that provide windows of opportunity for LT projects.
The LTO session will present the practical results of the project, i.e. tools and on-line information for the benefits of all involved in LT/MT and that will be maintained after the project end. These include:
- A language resources catalogue, annotated LRs for commercial and other purpose.
- On-line guide to national and regional funding opportunities.
- The MT EcoGuide: Practical steps for LT developers and users, and recommendations to decision-makers in easy-to-consume modules.
