Talks by members of the NEC TM consortium will focus on disseminating the project’s goals and benefits of fully exploiting public administration-generated data.

Project Goals and Objectives

The European Commission’s aims to promote and foster digital economies has made data generated by the public sector increasingly relevant. The NEC TM consortium’s objective is to organise unexploited national bilingual assets generated by public administrations. These language assets can be put to use as open data and general data for machine learning.

What’s more, the NEC TM project aims at providing a national and European free translation memory server that member states can use to store and exploit translation memories produced as a result of public administration contracts. This will lower translation costs at a national level and across the EU.

The consortium is also working on market research, an EU-wide investigation to ascertain the expenditure of outsourced translations by public authorities in each member state. This research will help National Anchor Points understand the current size of public expenditure in translation, and how much could be saved by centralising data and adopting the fast-performing NEC TM database.

The current market research will be presented at the 1-day event in Warsaw, along with presentations on the technical aspects and functionality of the NEC TM translation memory server. The NEC TM dissemination day presents an exciting step towards further centralisation and efficient data sharing across the EU.

Info Day at Paris

NEC TM Data consortium will develop and build on existing experiences with national administrations to run an Info Day, in which decision makers and stakeholders at the ministry level in several countries are made aware of the value of gathering and organising translation resources (the generation of language data, multilingual Big Data, the savings in translation costs, benefits of the use of machine translation, etc.). Insofar as possible, the Info Days will be co-located with the ELRC workshops, which will be held throughout 2018-2019.

Where to find us

At the next ELRC Meeting Language Resource Board (LBR), NEC TM Data consortium will have an information point in which participants will be able to obtain information and present the NEC TM Data project, its objectives and the project methodology.
