In 2020, there will be six new projects supported under the Connecting Europe Facility in the Telecom sector. Although the new Generic Services Projects are different in terms of focus and activities, they are all pursuing the same goal, i.e. to improve and facilitate multilingual communication. For those who are interested in the latest Generic Services projects related to the eTranslation DSI, we have prepared a short list of our six “newcomers” which are about to start:

  • Multilingual Anonymisation toolkit for Public Administrations, which will introduce Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools and develop a toolkit for effective and reliable text anonymisation in the legal and medical domain.

  • CEFAT4Cities, aiming to develop a “Smart cities natural language context”, providing multilingual interoperability of the Context Broker DSI and making public “smart city” services multilingual.

  • Unsupervised MT for Low-resourced language pairs (MT4All), which focuses on the collection of language resources to generate bilingual resources for language pairs that are lacking sufficient parallel corpora.

  • Curated Multilingual Language Resources for CEF AT which aims to compile curated (monolingual) data sets in domains that are relevant to the European DSIs.

  • User-focused Marian, which was initiated to improve the pre-existing neural machine translation toolkit “Marian”.

  • Federated eTranslation TermBank Network, aiming at developing a Federated eTranslation TermBank Network, which allows EU member state organisations and institutions the local deployment of individual eTranslation TermBank federated nodes.

Detailed information on all CEF Generic Services Projects is available here through the INEA website.
