The project aims to raise the visibility of existing best practices and standards and identify gaps. The core vehicle for this is a series of four events which are planned for the coming two years. Following three highly successful events in Madrid, Pisa and Limerick, this fourth and final workshop will be held in Luxembourg, co-located with the European Commission’s Language Technology Showcase Days and hosted by the Directorate-General for Translation (DGT) of the European Commission.
