Meeting of LINGUATEC project in Donostia (2019-02-21)

LINGUATEC project:  Development of cross-border cooperation and knowledge transfer in language technologies.

LINGUATEC is an European project funded by FEDER via POCTEFA (Programa INTERREG V-A España-Francia-Andorra). The partners are the followings:

  • Elhuyar Fundazioa
  • Lo Congrès Permanent de la Lenga Occitana
  • Universidad Del País Vasco / Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea (Ixa Taldea)
  • CNRS (CENTRE National de la Recherche Scientifique) – Delegation Regionale Midi-Pyrenees
  • Euskaltzaindia – Real Academia de la Lengua Vasca
  • Sociedad De Promoción y Gestión del Turismo Aragonés

The main objective in Linguatec is to develop, test and disseminate new innovative linguistic resources, tools and solutions for a better digitalization level of the Aragonian, Basque and Occitan languages. As a result, we will obtain, among others, (1) a road map of Aragonian Digitalization, (2) new monolingual and bilingual lexicons and morphosyntactic and syntactic analysers for Occitan, (3) a Northern Basque speech recognition system and several linguistic tools as well as (4) new innovative solutions for Aragonian, Basque and Occitan.

These cross-border cooperation will allow the transfer of knowledge and to develop linguistic solutions with a potential market uptake, benefiting language professionals, easing access to multilingual contents, and fostering the development of a cross-border language tech cluster.

After one year work, last Wednesday we had a project meeting in Donostia organized by Euskaltzaindia. Ixa Group presented the progress in the creation of an improved Neuronal Machine Translation system for the pair Spanish-Basque.
