The German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI, lead management) and Tilde are responsible for the development and continuous improvement of the Translator. It is supported through project funding of the Federal Foreign Office. The German EU Council Presidency Translator is powered by the neural machine translation systems of a mix of key players from industry (DeepL and Tilde), research (DFKI) and public institutions (eTranslation).
