The Federation

Cracking the Language Barrier assembles all European research and innovation projects as well as all related community organisations working on or with cross-lingual or multi-lingual technologies, in neighbouring areas or on closely related topics. In this umbrella initiative we collaborate on our joint objective to overcome any kind of language and communication barriers with the help of sophisticated language technologies.

Among the areas of collaboration are shared scientific tasks and evaluation campaigns, strategy papers (such as the Strategic Agenda for the Multilingual Digital Single Market), data management, resource and technology repositories as well as events and dissemination activities such as this joint website.
