EuroMatrix - a machine translation system capable of translating between all EU language pairs
EUROMATRIX will address European economic and social needs by aiming at the automatic translation of technical, social, legal and political documents across all pairs of EU languages, including the languages of new member states.
EUROMATRIX will apply the most advanced machine translation (MT) technologies systematically to all language pairs to achieve this goal. For most translation directions that involve languages of the new and near-term prospective member states, the project will provide baseline MT functionality for the first time. For language pairs where MT systems already exist, EUROMATRIX will design and investigate novel combinations of statistical techniques and linguistic knowledge sources as well as hybrid MT architectures in order to combine the accuracy of rule-based techniques with the adaptivity of data-driven approaches.
