The objective of the European Language Resource Coordination (ELRC) action, launched by the European Commission, is to identify and gather language and translation data relevant to national public services, administrations, and governmental institutions across all 30 European countries participating in the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) programme. All data resources gathered will be used to develop high-quality automated translation systems for EU languages in the CEF Automated Translation platform. The platform will enable multilingualism in EU cross-border public services.
Within the project, Simonetta Montemagni is the ELRC Technological National Anchor Point for Italy. All ELRC Technological National Anchor Points form all together the Language Resources Board, which is the governance body of the European Language Resource Coordination effort.
