Status of use of LT in Europe
In October 2019 the „Final study report on CEF Automated Translation value proposition in the context of the European LT market/ecosystem“ was published. The study was commissioned by the European Commission and it was carried out by Luc Meertens (CROSSLANG), Stefania Aguzzi (IDC) as well as ELG consortium members Khalid Choukri (ELDA) and Andrejs Vasiljevs (Tilde).
This study provides an analysis of the Language Technology market in the EU (taking into account supply and demand), of LT adoption by public services in the EU, and of the EU’s competitiveness with respect to the US and Asia in three LT areas. The analyses show that suppliers are often SMEs with local solutions and that public services have a strong interest for translation technology.
However, the worldwide LT market, that is dominated by large players, has deficiencies regarding under-resourced languages, customisation needs, and security and privacy requirements. Based on the results of the analyses, the study develops a business model for CEF AT by defining the latter’s value proposition in the context of the market.
