First Romanian dissemination event in the context of the European Language Grid (ELG)
The First Romanian dissemination event in the context of the European Language Grid (ELG) will take place on 24 march 2022 (times are in EET), online, on Zoom. The workshop language will be English.
In our globalized world language barriers affect cross-lingual communication and the free flow of knowledge and information. Language technologies, especially multilingual technologies, can help overcome these omnipresent and ubiquitous language barriers, significantly improving trade, administration, politics, communication and cross-cultural understanding.
The European Language Grid develops and deploys a scalable cloud platform, providing, in an easy-to-integrate way, access to hundreds of commercial and non-commercial language technologies for all European languages, including running tools and services as well as datasets and resources.
The project aims at establishing the ELG as the primary platform for commercial and non-commercial language technologies in Europe. A similar platform does not exist yet – not even globally. The ELG platform will be the very first of its kind, enabling the European LT community to upload services and data sets into the ELG, to deploy them and to connect with, and make use of those resources made available by others.
