Project summary
The aim of the project is to compile curated datasets in seven languages of the consortium (Bulgarian, Croatian, Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, Slovak and Slovenian) in domains of relevance to European Digital Service Infrastructures (DSIs) with a view to enhancing the eTranslation automated translation system. The prime source of data will come from national corpora of the above languages and will cover domains relevant for CEF DSIs, such as eHealth, Europeana or eGovernment. The corpus will contain at least 14 million sentences (estimated to contain 185 million words) from domains including culture, education, health and science. The data will be technically and legally cleaned. Terms from the IATE database will be identified and annotated so that the language models built with the help of these corpora will consist of not only single words but also multi-word expressions. Since an important aspect of today’s neural machine translation technology is the quality of the language model, the envisaged seven language corpora, although monolingual datasets in themselves, will make an impact on the quality of eTranslation through the enhanced language models built with them.

Presidency

The project Translation Automation Services (TAS) for EU Council (January 2019-June 2020) focuses on the multilingual challenges of the EU Council Presidencies, particularly addressing to the needs of the Romanian (2019), Finnish (2019) and Croatian (2020) presidencies. The Action fundamentally aims to make the European Commission’s eTranslation platform available to users in EU Member States by integrating the platform into an EU Presidency TAS, by enabling a variety of audiences to use the eTranslation platform in their everyday work, and by extending the eTranslation platform with a set of custom MTs tailored for the EU Presidency domain. It aims to make the language technology solutions –the eTranslation online service –available to a wider range of individuals in order to meet their multilingual needs, thus helping to establish the infrastructure for the multilingual Digital Single Market. The Action also leverages the best of language technology to extend eTranslation to meet the specific needs of EU Member States, by developing high-quality custom MT systems for the EU Presidency domain and the DSI domains at the focal points of the EU Council Presidency. The project will achieve this outcome by providing a translation service that lowers language barriers and enables international journalists, EU delegates, and policymakers to access precise and correct translated information about the hosting countries of the EU Council Presidency in 2019-2020 In addition, the EU Presidency TAS will also include MT engines that are specially tailored for the DSIs at the focal point of the EU Council Presidencies in 2019-2020, including Cyber security (in Romania), eJustice (in Croatia), and a DSI chosen by Finland.
