The European Language Resource Infrastructure (ELRI) project is an initiative co-funded by the European Union under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) programme.
The main objective of ELRI is the provision of an infrastructure to help collect, prepare and share language resources that can in turn improve translation services. In particular, resources shared with the DGT will contribute to improve the EU automated translation services that are freely available to all public institutions.
The initiative notably addresses current issues related to sharing resources directly at the European level or beyond, by providing national public relay stations where resources remain under member states’ laws and regulations unless further clearance is negotiated and granted.
ELRI targets resources that are relevant to Digital Service Infrastructures and involves public institutions and public translation centres in France, Ireland, Portugal and Spain as a first step, with a future extension to additional member states as a key objective.
