ELRC was initiated by the European Commission in 2015. The goal of ELRC is to collect language resources to train eTranslation, the machine translation service of the European Commission and to support cross-border communication between public services, ministries and citizens across the EU plus Norway and Iceland. Whenever possible, data collected by ELRC is also made available to the wider public for research and commercial applications: more than 80% of the language resources collected within the ELRC-SHARE repository are re-usable outside ELRC.
