The European Language Resource Coordination (ELRC) was launched to collect language resources for building machine translation systems for public service administrations across all EU Member States and Iceland and Norway which will better meet the everyday needs of public services across Europe. ELRC is an unprecedented public-sector data collection effort aiming to provide CEF.AT with language and translation data (mono- and bi-lingual data) relevant to the daily needs of European national administrations. It aims not only to close the gap between the capabilities of the current MT systems offered by the EC to the national administrations and the actual, day-to-day requirements of national public services across Europe, but also to support Europe’s national languages at the grass-roots level.
