Languages for a Digital Single Market

The LT Observatory project (Observatory for Language Resources and Machine Translation in Europe), coordinated by ZABALA, arises from the need for multilingual solutions for European companies and researchers. The objective is to eliminate language barriers in order to take advantage of the usefulness of content and data and thus avoid the loss of business opportunities.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement Nº 644583
